in thread Signal-to-Noise Ratio

I said upfront that it wasn't my model *g*. Nevertheless, the following axioms make it, if not a neccessarily exact measure of S/N, at least well-ordered:

Thus, we can at the very least use the sum total of all the moderations of all of a user's articles as an upper bound for the amplitude of "signal", and still compute an S/N ratio based on the value of that bound -- think of it as a "Peak S/N Ratio" within the space of all the possible values "signal" could take on for a given user.
