What if most of the images featured on an SP page come from outside of SP, e.g. from Wikipedia? Should such a page not be thought of as a poor page, especially if there's little firsthand beta? Does it deserve a 10/10 or rather less than 6/10? (Over 70% of the votes cast on one recently posted page like that are 10s.)

People vote mindlessly ...
Check out the votes on this picture, which I can say with 99% certainty is not the SP member's: http://www.summitpost.org/psychofatboy/863841.

Oh c'mon Bob, you don't like Burchey's photo of the day? Look at how well crafted that bird is flying with white glitter around it.

You guys are WAY too trigger-happy. All of you.
