Although I like the general idea, I think that just having a "button"
for that would be too simple for this to get abused. So this should
be a compromise between a simple enough system that allows people to
indicate the also experienced this, and complex enough that it doesn't
get abused by people (or robots, actually) randomly clicking buttons.
