    Do you really worry about your HUBPAGES rating - If so, WHY?

    I have noticed that HUBPAGES ratings are continually modified during controversial debates.  This rating modification may or may not reflect a truthful depiction of the individual as they wander through a truth vs deceit avenue.

    People have too much free time on their hands . I don't really bother about HP ratings.

    It is not a matter of worrying, because they are going to have no impact on my life. However, there is a level of curiosity that pushes me to try and understand things like Hub scores, why people eat raw fish and why anyone believes what is written in the tabloids. I seldom find the answer and my life goes on, but I am still curious.

    I don't really concern myself with the rating system. I just like to play video games, then write about those video games. It would be nice to see my hubber score at 100 just once. In the end, though, it's all about (writing about) the games for me.

    The thing is the system is so shocking, HubScore - as others have rightfully said - is nothing to be concerned about. The automated up and down system for this Score is an obscure one, because if I'm inactive my score can remain at a peak, but publishing a well written and engaging Hub, it can plummet. It's by far one of the worst scoring systems I've ever seen, and it seriously needs more tweaks before I put more faith and worry into it.
