That implies that the whistle level is determined
by more than whether someone blows the whistle.
So i'm guessing that either you wrote reviews that
somebody considers 'abusive' and/or "whistle level" is
at least in part determined by the way you vote on
new movies. I seem to recall one of the Fulp brothers
mentioning that there is a "shit list" for people who,
in somebody's opinion, blams too many movies. People
on the shit list forfeit the experience points they
would have otherwise accumulated. I'm not entirely
sure how it works (and i don't believe it's ever been
fully explained), but the gist of what i was reading
is that they wished they could find a better way to
penalize people who blam alot. My guess is that the
whistle rating is an attempt to find another way to
penalize the blammers. But like i say, it's a guess-
i don't know for sure.
Anyone else out there who has never blown the whistle
but has a "garbage" rating?
