    1212> I don't think this is helpful as most plugins do not have many reviews.

    14 This is exactly the point. For plugins with few reviews, reviews are not informative, especially when they are far apart. What to say, for example, about a plugin with two five-star ratings and two one-star ratings. Would you say a 3.0 accurately reflects these ratings? I wouldn't. When there's few reviews, the average rating only gives mock-insight, and doesn't inform users. You need more data for an average to make sense.
