Have you people noticed this funny guy. I call him the point(.) five (.5) guy.

His comments are all 4.5 5.5 6.5 x.5 portraying an image of a very precise voters who knows exactly what he is doing giving (.5) accuracy evaluations

There is a thread on this already... I would love to look it up but I am already an hour late for work. Hopefully someone else can find it in the interim

the real question is dos he round up or down when he casts the vote???
12/03/2010 06:18:48 AM · #4
I don't know... I looked at his first page of comments and 6 out of 10 were wrong.
12/03/2010 06:20:30 AM · #5
He was wrong 7 out of 10 times on the next page.

I don't think he is trying to predict consensus from all the voters but rather what his own opinion is.

I thought the OP was saying that he was accurately estimating the result:

I must have misunderstood

I wonder if he realises he can click the '1' to '10' buttons?

Perhaps he thinks you have to type your score into the comments box.

I don't check the helpful button because comments are helpful, I check it to keep track of and acknowledge my comments. ;p

ok -- now his average vote cast is 5.1xxx -- now someone should go through and figure out the average of the numbers in the comments and see if they average out higher or lower. :P

I find it hilarious that folks spend more than 30 seconds of their time considering this, especially since he posted that he's doing it for a project, to see how close he comes to the actual score.
It's as bad as gawkers on the highway, LOL.

I read the thread of messages and thought that your comments were nicer than some of the private messages I received from some people. As kirbic stated I did this for a graduate school project because my professor is a member who posts on this site. And FYI, I did round up my scores.

Have a Merry Christmas!
