I know the title is a little startling, but honestly, it's getting pretty frustrating. The plugin star rating/review system is literally becoming a tool for unhappy users to slate a plugins reputation in as little words as possible.
Of course, I think it is a great idea to have users leave positive feedback, that aspect of it is brilliant. And I do get a lot of great feedback, but more and more I am seeing it used to simply do damage.
As I've written a plugin dependent on jQuery, there is always going to be problems related to conflicts and backwards compatibility. I've accepted that, it's just the way things are with jQuery and WordPress at this current time.
Their frustration is definitely understandable when things go wrong (such as conflicts after upgrades), but instead of just starting a support topic (with which I am more than happy to help), they leave the a 1 star review. The most recent review I've gotten was "Annoying".
Shouldn't this system be constructive, not destructive?
