In TED do we really give "thumbs up" when it is "argued well"? Or do we give "Thumbs up" when "we agree with it"?

I say this, because many people often argue their points very well. Even if I don't necessarily agree with them. How reliable is the "Thumb up" system?

    You ask, "how reliable is the thumbs up system?" Reliable, to whom? To ourselves? Each other? TED?
    Do you mean with respect to the TEDcred?
