can you describe your issue in greater detail?

I took a at your account, and don't see evidence of anything particularly strange going on.

Hey Kevin,

It looks like you've stumbled around 5,000 times, but only ever thumbed-up five things.. when you don't rate your stumbles, the recommendation algorithm has a difficult time finding good stumbles for you (because it needs more information about what you like), and sometimes ends up returning multiple stumbles from a single domain, in an attempt to figure out what you like.

For best results, we suggest rating at least 3-5% of your stumbles.
