|I dont think they are. I do not know of a single website in which the system works well. Consider why Facebook, the second largest website on the Internet, does not use a "dislike" button. They dont add one because it creates a negative experience, which is not in the best interest of any company. Websites should remain net-neutral, and allow its users to determine the quality and worth of a post or piece of advice. The website, via a rating system or other means, should not be filtering the content.
Again with the 1 star? [Edit- it was the previous post that got 1 starred, moments after posting.]
Sigh. The stars were such a great idea. If only they had been fully implemented.
No matter how you implement a rating system, it will never reflect the actual accuracy of a post, only its popularity.
