Perusing articles, I came across Prime Number Distribution Sequence, first posted back in 2015. It currently has a score of 1.0 from 10 voters, even though the article seems well laid out, and a quick glance indicates it may contain a bit of interesting info, even if some points are invalid.

Is it really worth a score of 1.0, or is this a sign of SO-type action? Based on the biggest comment against it being a disagreement with why 2 is considered to be a prime number (although the article does treat 2 as prime, even if for the wrong reason), wouldn't a score of 2 or 3 make more sense? The article seems to have at least some meat on it for mental pondering.

I have seen articles that were complete crap that were treated better than this. It appears the author has closed their account in response to their treatment. (Although how this was updated today with what is now an inactive account is another perplexion.) This is not the only example I've seen of accounts closed because of responses the author received.

Can anyone see a reason not to vote the article a 5, to give a little offset to the score? Or am I missing something?
