one star Post is poorly written and/or has no appeal or relevance.
two stars Post requires significant revision and/or has dubious appeal or relevance.
three stars Post requires moderate revision and/or has adequate appeal or relevance.
four stars Post requires very little revision and/or has above average appeal or relevance.
five stars Post requires no revision and/or has exceptional appeal or relevance.

When rating someone’s writing, please be honest and accurate. Please do not rate good writing low because you don’t agree with its content.
