Who gets the “Was this post useful to you?” feedback?

Anonymous users can respond to a post by submitting the form below the post "Was this helpful to you ? Yes/No" Whats the purpose of this form ? Is there anyone digging around to check if a user has benefited from the post. And whats the output of this ?

Since a person found something useful should it not be converted to an upvote if 100 or some X Yes is received ? )

Checked out this related question and this one but I couldnt figure out the if anything was done.

  • @MartijnPieters So whats the output of recording that data ? – GoodSp33d Feb 1 '13 at 10:57
  • Currently, only those stats; the posts you linked to discuss ideas, nothing has been implemented other than what I linked you to as a dupe. See the discussion you already linked to for opinions on what high rates of helpful feedback could lead to; I agree with those opinions that upvotes are not a good idea. – Martijn Pieters Feb 1 '13 at 10:59
