10 "works for me" and 1 "deletes all my data" do not make a quality of +9. 
They mean a package that should be unpushed ASAP and most definitely NEVER 
be pushed to stable.

I mostly ignore generic "works for me" feedback with no details. It is not 
useful. I mainly care about whether there was any legitimate negative 
feedback or not. (Unfortunately, there is also plenty of invalid negative 
feedback, e.g., regressions that are actually caused by other updates, "does 
not fix bug #nnnnnnn" when it was never claimed to be fixed, etc.)
