The best and the worst instructables ever! Answered

As we know, the Wall-E Robot is the best ever instructable, because it has a rating of 4.62, and no instructable has a higher rating than the Wall-E Robot's instructable!

And who wants to know the worst ever instructable? The worst ever instructable is Ghetto Hacks! Right now, It has a rating of 0.83, who wants to rate the instructable? Are you going to rate it as the "best ever" or "worthless"?

Rather than gleefully waving somebody's project around and saying look everybody, isn't this bad? shouldn't you be quietly taking that person to one side and explaining how to make this or their next project better?

The latter is very much in the spirit of the site, the former makes us all look bad.

I fully agree. A pat on the back for a great ible is good, but it's never right to mock someone elses effort. Hey, we all have bad days!

Are you the final arbiter of what's okay here, does your opinion out weigh others? Yeah there are some terrible instructables, does repeatedly mocking the author accomplish anything?

This isn't actually really correct, the new rating system came in this year, before then we had "+", or "-", so the "best" Instructables will have the most +'s. =) except, that's the past.

-and anyway, I think pretty much all the "This i'Ble is the best!, and This One the Worst!" is biased. =)
