Ok
I just wanted to flag it. I personally know that to get a fan to rate even one album is almost impossible, so we never bother asking.
I reviewed Druckfarben ages ago and saw there were no reviews or ratings on it at all. I posted that fact on Facebook as a suggestion that any music lover wasting time on fb liking stuff, might like to come and take a look on PA, find some new music and even rate some albums they like or review someone. I don't think even one did a thing.

Just because he joined today doesn't mean he had to listen to them all from today.

He couldn't of possibly just rated albums he had listened to prior to creating an account?

I saw this WTF! http://www.progarchives.com/Collaborators.asp?id=53479&listreviews=rate&showall=true#reviews

I know that someone has downed a huge number of albums (I'm used to having that done to us) but this time, 3 albums that I am on were given 5s. This is another idiot up to no good. Nobody I know would do that. i hope it can be fixed.
Damn those people!

Hey, somebody can sincerely like your music...Smile Looking at his/her ratings there are not only 1 and 5 stars as often happens. There are some very obscure RPI acts, too.


Ha ha! Yes we must be brilliant.
Unfortunately this happens daily on PA as I guess you know. My guess is that someone wants us to be hated and targetted? Soon we will go back to getting the 2s and 3s from those guys and I can relax. Big smile

^I personally don't see it that way. He used the word protest in reference to his previous sentence about trying to be objective about art and failing because he disliked the music so much, not because how other people rated it.

Apart from it being a rather dull and uninspired review (at least for my tastes), I don't see him breaking the guidelines.
His words are "On the other side there is also music that you find so wrong and non-appealing that you want to protest and just give the record one star."
From what I can gather, from reading through the whole thing, is that he is protesting against what he thinks is 'non-appealing' music. It doesn't say anything about balancing things out.

This guy rated the Heretics album with 1 star in "protest" (his words) to balance out what he perceived to be too many positive reviews.

This review is against the rules. He mentions Evolver and his one star rating of the album.


Looking better, the mentioned rating is from "evolver1". It's true that there's a high number of ratings only and all the Marillion albums are 5-stars, but I don't see anything strange apart of the fact that almost all the VA compilations are rated by him, maybe because they're on the same page. But nothing "illegal", apparently.

My opinion is that the sentence about evolver or evolver1 should be removed.

I see I've had a bunch of 1 star ratings removed ... I thank you for that.

Hey, guys, what's going on with Iamthemorning's new album?  There have been a dozen new ratings in the last 12 hours, and most of them are 1 star.  The album comes out next week...
