There are many others with higher ratings. People like Compuwiz1 has somewhere around 9 for his rating.

The problem is that it is all too easy to rate someone with "1" without giving them due consideration.....you can't go back to change the rate you gave someone either. People's ratings generally fall very quickly when they express an unpopular opinion too.

Personally, I leave mine on to let people tell me how I'm going with answering their questions or writing FAQs.

A lot of folks get confused and think that "1" is the highest rating, rather than "10."

I don't think so. I think it's more like people enjoy giving ones.

Lol I think they're funny, most men have a 5 or lower particularly if you frequently speak your mind to the fullest and potentially offend someone :) Ladies usually tend to have much higher ratings :D

The majority of people here tend to like giving 1's more than 10's. As AndyHui and NewCompGeek said, if you voice an unpopular opinion (like I have and continue to do) your rating will instantly plummet.

I leave mine on, hoping that someone will think enough of what I have to say to give me a high rating. So far, only 8 people have rated me, so the possibility of a high rating is still there.

Please give me a 10 if you agree with me. :)

<< I've got a 1 as user rating ( I was only rated once ) >>

I gave you a 10, so you now have a 5.50 rating. You may thank me now. :)

(I have also given 10 ratings to other people in this thread.)

The user ratings are totally pointless.

But just for you BingBongWongFooey, I gave you a ten anyway :)

Truer words have never been spoken. I gave you a 10 for it :)

When I first started posting, I got confused with the ratings. Though 1 was best and 10 worst. So I tested on my bf's with a 1, and lowered his rating :D ooooops....

I didn't even know mine was turned on, when I looked at it I was quite surprised to see a 10.

But only two votes. :p

Decided I'd quit while I was ahead.

I sometimes wonder if I should turn mine off as I don't really help folk here because I'm looking for some sort of reward in return!
