What happened to Amazon's new ranking system ?

Only the "classic" numbers show up on Amazon anymore. What happened to the new ranking system? "Disappeared" w/o trace?

For some reason, Amazon was just futzing around. Both systems, the more reasonable new one and the fraudulent old one, have returned since your posting. There seems little chance Amazon'll ever retire the old system. How about making the case that it's to Amazon's clear advantage to require all negative votes on reviews or comments to be accompanied by a self-identifying and explanatory comment in order to be tallied. Such a change after all could hardly hurt Amazon's sales :-)!, and it would surely cut down on those idiotic vendetta votes by certain Top Reviewers and/or their fans. Just a thought.
