There is nothing now, so I cannot see what Chris is complaining about.

I will trust that Chris's complaint has some merit.

As I said in another thread (ignored), I wanted to comment on a package 
and say something helpful without rating it. As I remember, I had looked 
at the package to see that something was missing (maybe in the doc, not 
the code) but had not used it and therefore could not fairly rate it and 
therefore would not.

As a 3rd party, I cannot do that! If you want community discussion, you 
have to let people discuss without fake ratings.
