If you don’t like a product for what are deemed to be the wrong reasons, your vote no longer counts:
A leading film rating site has adjusted its review metrics after it found “unusual voting activity” for a live-action remake of The Little Mermaid that has been criticised for casting a black actress as Ariel.
The film, which was released in May, had a 7/10 rating on the Internet Movie Database (IMDB) website, despite 15,000 of its 39,000 user-submitted reviews having given it one star.
In a notice posted on the film’s page, IMDB said: “Our rating mechanism has detected unusual voting activity on this title. To preserve the reliability of our rating system, an alternate weighting calculation has been applied.”
The lesson, as always, is this: convergence eliminates an organization’s ability to perform its primary function.
What is the point of a review site that does not permit reviews? The fact that it is permissible to dislike a movie for one reason, but impermissible for another reason renders the entire service of the review site irrelevant. After all, if one person doesn’t wish to see a movie with a black protagonist, this point is presumably of interest to anyone who happens to share their opinion.
Such as, for example, the entire population of China and most of the population of Asia.
