Dearest Pinside community...
I thought Robin invented the "bogus ratings" to allow the community to vote away the "1" and "10" ratings that dirty the ratings on games, since no game is ever a 1 or 10 -- not to mark ratings we disagree with, because they aren't high enough for pins we own.
I just reviewed my 23 ratings, most of which have clear explanations for the ratings. Of my 23 ratings, almost all are 7 through 9 -- with a few exceptions -- I see that my (5.992) rating for WOZ got 5 "bogus" ratings. Completely hilarious.
This means there are at least FIVE soul-crushed WOZ owners out there, who will mark your rating "bogus" if you don't give their game a high rating -- you will get voted off their fantasy island of "OMG. my pin rulez, you are the one who is bogus!"
I guess I'll submit a feature request to Robin that we allow our "bogus ratings" to be reviewed so that Robin can pinpoint the people who are abusing the bogus button -- and "undo" ratings from people who mark them against ratings that are "well-thought out, and are simply not a 1 or 10."
Don't mean to crush your soul but Diner is no 9.5!! I'm gunna have to hit you with a bogus rating on that one
