Regardless of the ideal of honest ratings, the current system is not accurate.

At school we rate our teachers, anonymously. I think it is a fact that anonymous ratings are more honest ratings.

Before we had a range in value for the overall rates a user received. Now we have no range. If everyone is a four or a five, what is the sense in the rate?

I see your point. I do not agree that it is good.

When I lobby, I lobby for the whole...at least I think I do.

Thank you for your opinion.

Yes, I would be more inclined to give out bad rates when deserved if they were anonymous. As it is, if I rate a user low and he sees that, he will turn around and likely rate me low for no other reason than to get back at me.

Look at your rating of Boxtop and his subsequent rating of you. That is a perfect example.

In general, people who rate are very effected by the fact that the ratee is going to see their rate, this skews the honesty of the rating system IMO.

The rating system is more for unaquainted people to get an idea for the reliability of a user. As it stands most of us are reliable to the same degree, I don't think this is the actual case though.

There should only be trade rates.

The rest are a waste of space.

Agreed. Anyone who feels the need to spend their lives posting insults in ratings about complete strangers on the internet is clearly a very pitiful human being.

I only post postive ratings unless one of the pitiful sort raise themselves onto their hind legs to post a rating "attacking" me :smirk:

A good system and the same I use.

Most of that criticism came from people who thought I was too strict in S&P.

Be serious. No-one minded you being "strict". It was your childish and vindictive editing of posts by anyone you didn't like, petty vandettas and humourless, arrogant manner which eventually led people to complain about you en masse.

They hated me, so I left to please them.

No-one "hated" you. They simply considered you a very poor, offensive moderator and complained about you. As is their right. Instead of dismissing this as people "hating" you, be mature and consider it a learning experience.

As a moderatator you shoul take Papavers advice and not ignore people on the board. As he stated that mods need to be able to see all comments made by all people.

I can't remember the last time I even responded to a post "the member in question" made, never mind made the "multitude" of comments in your vivid imagination. I'd forgotten you even existed until you recently indulged your tireless obsession and posted a nasty rating about me. To which I replied in kind. I certainly wouldn't have felt rating you was even worth the effort.

If by "edited by the administration" you mean my friendly chat with papaver the situation was simple.  I assumed after the torrent of complaints about your disgraceful abuse of the moderators position that you had been ejected from the S&P forum. I'm sorry if I misunderstood the situation but noting your reluctance to explain your departure I had to guess that you had been pushed rather than jumped.

Now can you PLEASE use the ignore feature and never respond to me ever again. I will gladly extend you the same courtesy  :smile:

Just a little addition here I stopped posting and even looking at the politics activisin & law forum cos my ratings went down to two and I luckily did not have to trade until the new system came into place
and when it did I have only one trade rating by a respected member
and as a result many people have traded with me. (and I await there favorable ratings). But my whole point is this is a mushroom site and to those people who actually care about there growing should tread lightly
and use the site for what its for. There are many chat rooms and foums in which you can stir the shit out of people elsewhere (this is what I do).
But I think as has been said above there are members who dont really care about growing and can afford to be out of control but they mainly lurk in OTD (soap opera of the shroomery) and Pol/act/law. And are easily avoided.
