    Since we already once can see who rep/de-rep us, perhaps we should view who rated the threads (only in BST)?

    I'm always curious why some threads, particularly threads in the BST section, always receive 1-star just after approval. Usually such rates are given by their competitors or other members offering the same service.
    This is totally unacceptable especially when the person did not even try out their service before.

    Perhaps it is time to enable viewing who rated the threads?
    Those whom abused the rating system should be dealt with.

    Good suggestion, but a lot of threads are rated by more than one member. This could be 1,2,3,4 or 5 star and then the final ratings are shown by taking the average ratings into consideration.

    Yes but a service thread worthy of a 5 star rating should receive a 5 star rating. Gaining one bad 1 star rating will prevent this from happening, and believe me a full 5 star rating service does better business than a 4 star rating business owner.

    Competition is hijacking star rating - all service providers know that.
    In my 4 service openings I got 3 times 1 star spammed during first day.

    My suggestion would be to disable star rating for BST all together, or let admins/mods being able to view it (to see if it was submitted by customers, or competitors).

    A great suggestion. This happens a lot in BST!

    I would be great to see who rated a thread (let it be for JrVIPs only or for all).

    +1 from me!
