Okay, let me just say one thing about this, for starters, i am not going to target the content of any of the posts about ratings themselves, this is purely about putting up the poll and why I am against that.
In MU's rating topic, votes were cast, in the end my vote was not declined, and taken into the average. Now we are here, and because people dislike my reasoning, whatever it may be, they use that dislike for it as a justification to just throw my vote away. I.e., The people here use their dislike/discontent etc to justify removing everything that doesn't fit in their perspective.
And that's what I didn't like. Just because people disagree with me, it's ok to say "he doesn't count"
After voting was over, the average would stand, as for example:
Reason two of course what i'm referring to. Cast votes are cast votes. My vote was added and part of the average. Never has an average been altered, and now it has just because people didn't like the average. That's what is bugging me. I hope you guys can understand that. No matter the argument, it is just bad ethics to throw a vote out just because you don't agree/like it.
1, that's completely unacceptable to give him no points solely for his personality. You've only barely touched on his gameplay performance. 2, after I say tallying, I'm not counting anymore votes. It's cool that you want to get involved, but just know that I will not be counting your vote into Makalov's score for both of those reasons.
If I would have opened the topic, and had lowered MU's score because I didn't like all your tens, and would have taken them out of the average , you wouldn't be happy either right? The poll was not about placement on the list, it was about "do we want to throw Sal's vote away." Now replace my name with yours, would you be happy?
Using dislike (or whatever) for something as a justification to cast it out is wrong.
And I'm not going to bother replying to anyone anymore about this, because if people don't understand that, i'm not going to get through to them anyway.
