As Shog9 said:

It means you're not voting. You're leaving "feedback" - we track the nature of your vote, but don't alter the post score in response to it.

If the post score isn't modified, is anything else being modified? Is this used for people reached or similar? Or is it just a tally?

  • I would assume it is used. Mar 29, 2016 at 1:57
  • @TheGuywithTheHat I would assume that it's not (unregistered isn't) and there aren't many places to use it. Mar 29, 2016 at 2:47
  • It is recorded, but does not modify anything. I believe it does affect newsletters, i.e. questions with big feedback score might appear in newsletters, when otherwise they won't. Mar 29, 2016 at 7:26
