Most probably won’t have noticed, but I have removed the star rating system from posts and pages from my site.

Simple reason is that it wasn’t proving useful. Very few were using it at all, so I wasnt getting any real feedback from it about what people liked and what they didn’t. And secondly, there are a couple of people out there who have decided that they do not like what I do, so instead of doing the normal thing and finding somewhere else to go, their mission in life became to 1 star my posts.

If it was a genuine criticism, I’d expect a comment to discuss, but the chances are it was from the one or two people that have been blocked from commenting. I rarely ban, or even moderate any comments, but like spammers, there are some real tossers out there!

So no more star ratings. C’est la vie
