    A little blurb hidden in a Forbes article about BMY's Ipilimumab

    It's pretty tough even for dedicated down-raters to get messages all the way down to three stars when there are 25 or more aggregate aliases giving these totally-worthless messages five-star ratings.

    With this kind of ballot-stuffing, I can't imagine anyone even being interested in ratings at all. Are they meaningful when one person can rate them ten or twenty times or even more?

    It's a constant source of amazement to me that so many people really think that ratings matter. That if someone with multiple aliases rates a Hee-Haw post five stars thirty times that somehow it's essential reading.
