My swapbot ratings opinion: I joined this site for fun and to receive fun art pieces in the mail. It really started out that way. Things were smooth and people really enjoyed the swaps. My ratings are always fair, if a person made the effort to send the swap I feel they met the requirement. I think that being a stickler in a swap turns people off. I have noticed that some participants are missing that part of the rating schedule. Ease up people, it's all in fun. But that is just my opinion.
