Scarily, I think this is close to the general public perception!

RE: xkcd On Star Ratings

I love XKCD. This is a bit depressing though - worryingly accurate.

RE: xkcd On Star Ratings

With almost all of the xkcd comics there is another bit in the title/alt text/bit if you hover the mouse over the picture. In this case it reads:
"I got lost and wandered into the world's creepiest cemetery, where the headstones just had names and star ratings. Freaked me out. When I got home I tried to leave the cemetery a bad review on Yelp, but as my hand hovered over the 'one star' button I felt this distant chill ..."
Which is a bit creepier than usual
