@annika this is well worth reading on this problem https://www.evanmiller.org/how-not-to-sort-by-average-rating.html
"Sort by highest rating" really needs to take the number of reviews into account, or let you filter by review count. I don't give a crap about a 5-star item if it only has one review.
pet loss, rats Show more
We lost Poe today. He was a little over 2 years old, our 4th rat, and our 8th to pass. Shy from the start but a great snuggler, he would climb down your shirt collar first chance he got. He was a good papa to our newest little dumbo baby, and I'll miss him lots. Hope you found your own papas on the other side. 💕🐀
I have a log file that's followed me around since 2005. When something notable happens, I add a short update to the bottom of the file. I forget about it sometimes but most life events make it in there.

#Bitcoin must die
If Bitcoin were to cease trading tomorrow, 0.5% of the world’s electricity demand would simply disappear. This is roughly equivalent to the output of ten coal-fired power plants, emitting 50 million tonnes of CO2 per year – which would cover one year’s worth of the carbon emission cuts required to limit temperature rises this century to 2C.
Why Did I Do These Things, Saturday Edition:
* Set up a new WordPress blog to track life events like car and medical stuff.
* Made a plugin so the Life Events blog is private.
* Moved a Docker install of Mediawiki from my laptop to a Linode.
* Restricted access to Mediawiki to my VPN.
* Installed VPN software on my Windows 10 PC.
* Created a new client config for that PC, tied to Duo push 2FA.
I can't rename a folder in DigitalOcean Spaces to have a space in the name which is both ironic and fucking impossible to search for.
