So, I have a forum post on RRL that, every once in a while, gets picked up by some random passerby, and today I saw this in a comment: "...if I think a 4-star rated story isn't that good (more like 3 stars), I can give it a 0.5 star, 1 star or a different rating below those 4 stars. The effect of my rating is that the overal rating will drop to say 3.965 or 3.97 or 3.975, given enough ratings. So in the end the difference between 0.5 and 1.5 ain't all that big. It's just that 0.5 stars will drop the rating slightly further and closer to the 3 stars I think it's actually worth, which would be a reason to vote 0.5 stars." Honestly? This makes me want to cut-and-run from RRL for moral reasons (nothing to do with the showrunners over there), but I'd love to hear your guys' thoughts on the matter.
