    Hi WordPress

    could yu please LIMIT Rating to one email address ONLY. I was shocked to find plugins like that one here:

    https://wordpress.org/support/plugin/wp-user-frontend/reviews/?filter=5

    where one user, probably the plugin owner or one related to it rated constantly with 5 stars to keep up the fictional quality of his plugin: Mehedi Hasan I stopped counting how often he was actually rating the one and same plugin!

    This is not what rating is meant for and it gives a completely wrong picture to those plugins. I suggest you simply DELETE all doubled ratings or as soon as a doubled rating occurs you simply block another rating. Instead, people would be able to modify their rating instead.

    Thanks

    You’ve made a mistake and that’s not what is happened. Look at that link again and look at this image.

    The author didn’t leave those reviews. Except in very weird buggy ways that doesn’t happen too often, you cannot leave more than one review for the same plugin or theme.

    What you are seeing is that the author replied to each of those reviews. That’s in the Last Post column because that’s the person who last posted in each of those reviews.
