if they don't you get bitched and moaned at for not agreeing with the crowd, regardless of if what you say is actually helpful or not.
not true in general. even if you don't agree with the majority, you can still get a helpful rating sometimes if you can provide strong reasons for giving a low score on a popular submission, with elaboration and good organisation, and suggestions. check out the constructive reviews for the top 50 with scores under 5.
but i agree the ratings you get might not be meaningful and you should ignore them as long as you continue to write good reviews.
