While I doubt this was the intention, the star rating system in the RM is functioning as negative reinforcement and the atmosphere is changing because of it. Anything less than 5 stars implies that something is wrong. Some of the devs are taking it personally. I can't say I blame them. Addon development requires a lot of time and effort which is not met well with negative ratings. Negative feedback is one thing, but the star system doesn't facilitate feedback, it's just one click.
My suggestion is to replace stars with likes.
