FS#12896 - Suspiciously low theme ratings, inconsistent rating average

I noticed that some of my latest “Googley” themes for the iPod Video/Classic and the Fuze+ were getting suspiciously low ratings.

Then I noticed that another theme from another author, “ipodWidgets” had a stupidly high count of extremely low votes: at this time, 0.5 star out of 5, with 28 votes. A snapshot from from november 2012 shows 4 stars out of 5 with 18 votes, for that theme, ipodWidgets. Since the theme hasn’t been updated since 2009, the ratings should not have been reset.

The math doesn’t add up. With 4 stars and 18 votes, that’s 4×18 = 72 points. If all of the last 10 votes from the current vote count of 28, where all ratings of 0, then the average would currently be: 72/28 = 2.5 stars out of 5. How is it that the current average is 0.5?

P.S. it seems that the rating form doesn’t do sanity checks on the submitted value.

Accepted the gerrit fix (669ffd1). However I don't know when it'll pushed to the actual site.
