Every time I rate a story POOR, it comes out with a BEST rating when I am finished as though you fixed it to ignore low ratings. Your Bill Clinton story is awful, like The Onion for 5th graders, and the TMZ story is so obvious as to be not worth typing. I wish you would do a little better. The Onion itself is only generally on the level of 7th grade humor as it is; please don’t aspire to be worst than that.
I’m not sure if Ulysses is our biggest fan, or biggest hater. His words sound like what I say every time I see a new Stephen Dorff movie, The Phantom Menace, or Indiana Jones and The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. It’s tough to gauge.
But let me assure you, Uli, the ratings are not rigged. There are quite a few articles that have not been read favorably(see Natasha Richardson).
