Rating systems tend to go that way. When anybody can rate something, it appears to end up in a binary mode: Perfect rating or nothing, often enough with immediate consequences for anything less than a perfect score.

I think that this sort of behavior is a sign that there is some sort of competition between users is going on. The rating system has become a 'weapon' in the competition, a means to promote 'friends' and harm 'oppnents'. The problem is, that this behavior makes the ratings worthless for anybody who is interested in the subject, not in the competition between the users.
I have lived with several Zen masters - all of them were cats.

His last invention was an evil Lasagna. It didn't kill anyone, and it actually tasted pretty good.
