Significantly lower recommendation score for software that has previously been uninstalled from the system

Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
software-center (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Software a user have chosen to uninstall should not be put at the top of the list of software recommendations. The act of uninstalling should count as a down-vote for that software package.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Clean installation of Ubuntu
2. Uninstall any software package (e.g. `unity-webapps-common`)
3. Open the Software Center
4. Login using a Ubuntu single sign on
5. Enable recommendations
6. Open Recommended for you

What do you know: there is Amazon ‘Unity WebApp integration script’ listed as the number two software I should (re-)install even though I clearly do not want it on my system.

Ubuntu 12.10, software-center
