This is why I hate five-star ratings!

Tobias van Schneider has it exactly right: a five-star rating is actually four options that all mean “this sucks,” varying levels of “it’s good” between 4.1 and 4.9, and then 5 stars just means you’re a liar. This is... not a good system, and it’s the same confusing mess everywhere on the internet!
