Except the thread is about *anonymous* ratings without comments. You
will know that your overall rating may have changed, but you may not
know which direction (especially if you have lots of votes already)
and you do not have a mechanism for contacting the author or gaining
any additional information.

The emails in question are, literally, a notification that your
overall popularity has either gone up a bit, down a bit or unchanged
(but not which one!)
