I see it often when browsing Polish beers, but also foreign ones: people just say “I tried this beer a long time ago, just rating it to complete my profile”, or “Rating based on personal memories from a beer tasting”. Sometimes they’re just obviously copypasted texts from beer-ticking websites (we all know which website). Sometimes 1/3 of all ratings of a given beer sound like this!
These aren’t ratings, they distract people who bother to read other people’s comments on a beer, and they bring nothing of value to this website, which prides itself on maintaining a high level of proffessionality and integrity. These are mere ticks, and should be treated as such (RateBeer has been offering a “ticking” option for some time now, so there is really no reason for people to write this drivel).
Could we please introduce word filters or something, to get rid of all those completely useless and worthless ratings? I’d personally volunteer to delete them.
