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?

      • Jun 24 2013: But in this context, is it correct?Moreover i believe anything done in abundance tends to degrade its value.Choose wisely and use wisely.

          When one loves in abundance, does the value of love get degraded?
