More on Avvo - working out the bugs

Here's more from Larry Bodine on Avvo and some problems and weird ratings. Apparently, Abraham Lincoln and Clarence Darrow are listed. (Why? A plausible explanation: the Illinois ARDC lists all deceased lawyers in the register, too.) The Solicitor General has the same rating that I do. (No argument from me.) And disbarred lawyers and felons have higher ratings than me. (Argument from me there.) Presumably the bugs will work themselves out, but here's another reason the number system just troubles me, at least for now.
