    A general question, not PERL releated:

    Many web sites have an article/message/user reputation based on the up or
    down votes the article/message/user receives. How is a reputation score
    calculated given only up and down votes? (The user is not presented with
    a 1 to 5 scale for scoring something.)

    Thank you. I had looked at Perl Monks and not found this article.
