[pmwiki-users] Rating cookbooks: a concrete suggestion

Three arguments for putting recipe ratings and discussion on a Talk  

1. It  encourages discussion about the recipe. I hate to clutter  
documentation with "insider" comments. But on a Talk page, I'd feel  
freer to say what I think - even if it's a minor point or something  
I'm not sure about.

2. Conceptually it's less confusing and simpler to the reader. A de- 
cluttered recipe page is more user friendly and inviting.

3. People may want to sign up for email notification about changes to  
the recipe without being notified about every comment and rating added.
