Fun expresses outrage over his lack of stars.

Spoof writer NickFun lamented today that fewer people than ever have been rating his stories, even though he thinks he's doing a fine job.

I check my statistics almost daily", Fun said. "Every day, even when I don't have a new story, I get at least 300 views. But most days no one rates my stories!"

TheSpoof.com has a 'star rating system' which allows individual readers the opportunity to rate stories from one star, as a poor quality story, to five stars, indicating a very funny story.

Fun pointed out that before The Spoof redesigned its site, nearly 10% of readers would rate Spoof stories. However, since the site was redesigned last year, that figure has fallen to less than 1%. As an example, Fun showed statistics indicating one story from late 2007 which only achieved 254 views was rated 54 times. In contrast, one of his latest stories about Miley Cyrus not posing nude, has achieved over 14,000 views but has only been rated 17 times.

"It's not the redesign of the site", said Harvard University psychologist Andrew Spigelman, "It's the war in Iraq, the economy, the housing crisis and rampant unemployment. People don't have time to rate Spoof stories".

Fun disagreed with Spigelman's assertion. "It takes less than a second to rate a story. It takes almost a minute to read the story. I'm sure people can find the one second it takes to rate the story!"

Fun claims he doesn't care if he gets one or five stars but simply wants to know the opinions of the American readers.

"I seem to have a five star following but if you don't like the story then please tell me that!" Fun declared.
