Ratings should be optional (turn on or off) just like the Comments
By allowing the uploader to be able to turn on and off the ratings. just like Comments, seems like the best solution to please the most. People who don’t like ratings can simply turn them off.
Ratings should be something like 1-4 stars. Most of us know that there is no rating given for a click of 6 or below.
I agree - that would be the best of all worlds!
