users who subscribe to the site (i.e. pay for a star) get the ability to recommend any posts made by others (non-sub dont get this option). the number of recs on a post is an indication of how many subs have rec'd the post. you can view all recommended post by clicking the "Recommended" link (right hand side of the menu bar above)
the reason for rec is sometimes not obvious and depends on who recs it but the most common reasons are that the post was funny, informative, helpful or clever.
hope this makes things clearer
