I know none of us live and die by the star rating system. However, I've noticed as of late, there's a schmuck on the ELR calculator site that loves to downgrade recipes just because he/she doesn't like the fact you gave yourself a 5 star rating on your own recipe. This has happened to me on several occasions.
I publish a few recipes at a time on one day (with a five star rating) and the next day (or within hours) the recipe has another vote, but the recipe has a three star rating now. It hit me that this schmuck is just being a d@ckhead and giving the recipe one star just to reduce the rating.
So, be aware, not all star rating votes on the ELR calculator site are accurate. Some folks are just smallminded d@cks!
