should be banned from j-pop rates!
Not when you're one of the lower scorers along with her, hun.
Interesting opinion @Osiris
! I'd suggest that people who don't use the full range of scores should be banned instead, but then there'd only be like 3 people in each rate so I guess that wouldn't work www. But at the very least I won't be joining the subsequent parts of the Kumi rate, so that's something for you, anyway.
Awww, please reconsider. I do tease you a lot, but it's only due to your unconventional way of scoring and to the point, almost blant commentary. It wouldn't be as dynamic and fun without you.
In the end I believe anyone can score as they please, because scoring a song in the first place isn't that easy. Like, I would probably never going to be able to give any song a 0, a 1 or a 2, as those scores indicate no or almost no redeeming qualities for the song, when in reality I tend to participate in the rates, where I appreciate the artist, hence my disposition of seeing positive sides in any song. Granted, I would probably never listen to the songs I give 5 and less, but that doesn't mean that these songs deserve a lesser score. Anf then again, for someone else just this one thing, the realization that they won't be listening to this song again, makes them go and put a 0 or something for it. AND it's totally fine and okay to do that, but I hope these people realize that they scores might provoke others, especially those, who feel really passionate about this particular rated artist. Also, please do not forget that in a small rate like this every single score counts its weight in gold.
I love Kumi to death and you all know it, so obviously it is hard to see some great, in my opinion, songs dragged down by low or average scores, still I try to take my stan glasses off and consider all the possible outcomes. I wish this people would at least provide reasoning for those scores, as not everyone do and not for all of their low scores.
A scoring system would be nice, although there is no one to monitor it and no guarantee that everyone would abide by it.
