There is no difference between thumbs and recs. Both pointless.
There were several highly recommended posts under the rec system which contained ONE word, which meant that the post was no more than a popularity contest. Why would anyone enjoy reading a ONE word post?
Being taken to a list of posts that have been "rec'd" by people just means that you may get to see posts you would rather ignore.
