Thumbs down on WordPress Reblogging

Today Richard (thesacredpath) tried some experimentation with the new wordpress “like” and reblog feature. He reblogged my Basic Netiqueitte for Beginner Bloggers post and then he reblogged his reblog of my post.

The possibly related posts links to the reblogged post, NOT to the original. So readers, what’s your opinion of the value of this “like” and reblog feature?
