You are right, the "voting" is a joke here. Less than 10% of items are listed because of "voting".
The "voting" exists so as to drive traffic which in turn pumps up some flavor-of-the-month "e-commerce business metric". Then it can be morphed into a beautiful chart (demonstrating the "popularity" of the site), to be presented to investors.
Massdrop is now a "sort-of discounted" retailer pretending to be a group-buy site.
Back to the product. IF it's a high quality item, some of us may have some use with it. But it appears to be terrible. Just read the 1 star comments on Amazon.
