You can give someone a cheese if you appreciate the help they've given you, or if you find something they've posted to be an outstanding, above and beyond effort.  Or you can give them for whatever reason you deem worthy.

I see, I guess my next question would be: how do you give them cheese? I only see a thums up thingy, and don't equate that with cheese.
Thanks for the information.

Thumbs up, and Thumbs down are there to give and take away "cheeses"

Cheeses are peer awarded recognition for something well done, or not well done.
