This relevance factor seems like it has a snowball effect; i.e., an item with a high relevance rating get more exposure, which gives it an even higher relevance rating, which gives it more exposure, and so on. So, does the cause the really great stuff to float to the top, or does it become another exercise in gaming metrics, like google's page count?

It is hard to imagine a conversation ranking system that isn't susceptible to gaming. I fully agree, though. Every system that is out there is open to gaming and easy to exploit.
