    Default Pub Ratings

    Personally I'm for them, when searching new towns I find them a useful (if not gospel) aid, I know some are not so keen, but how is it that Sweeney's Bar is rated at 9/10 when the only review on the page from Al Bundy is unrated? Maybe it's from a former deleted review , but surely if a review disappears so does the associated rating?

    There appears to have been a Callum Jordan review, but all his reviews seem to have been deleted.
    On leaving the bar, I felt a strong blow to the back of my head. Turning round, I discovered it was the pavement

    Looks like it, but it appears his rating is still counted (which is odd, so perhaps Dave can clarify)?

    He had a lot of reviews, I wonder what the problem was?

    His "reviews" were simply a full stop and a rating.

    A pillock then, his ratings need to be removed as well if possible.

    Perhaps he has come across from BITE, where it was possible to leave a rating without a review. Obviously common sense would dictate that as PUG makes you leave a text review with your rating one should at least make an attempt at entering some semi-meaningful text - but of course common sense is not a flower that grows in everybody's garden. It may well be that the ratings were well intended, but I would agree with the general principle that if a review (or non-review) warrants deletion then so should its corresponding score.
