HOW DO YOU DEFINE A BOMBER?

Just curious; I was looking at showdown possibility, and discovered the person in the list ahead of me had the daunting combination of:

74% win on showdown --the highest I've seen, can anyone do better? (presumably par is 40-50 if all stalemates = losses)

4.44 rating of other people's quizzes. Not that (s)he has rated that many -- 800.

How low does your rating have to go before you become a bomber --and if you do does that invalidate all your quiz ratings?

I have never seen a Bomber Alert! on anyone over 3. So, my guess is sub-3.

I don't know if one should consider this person a "bomber", but there is something wrong with their view of things. There is a different person on here who has taken thousands of quizzes with a lifetime average of between 3.6 and 3.7. They are both saying significantly fewer than half the quizzes on this site are not even decent, let alone fun or good. In both cases these folks have never written a quiz of their own. If this is true, why are they wasting their time being here. They should simply find a more satisfying hobby worthy of their self-assumed superior intellect.

I agree with what Steve said...Personally I think that anyone who rates a 5 or below should be considered a bomber...it really brings the rating level down for your quizzes...especially if more than one rates you low. This has happened to me. Vickie

This info on bombers (from 2005) may be outdated:

Good feedback. Currently, we delete quiz bomber ratings weekly. A quiz bomber is any player who has rated more than 20 quizzes, and their average rating is less than 3.1. Each week, all of their ratings are removed from all quizzes they have taken -- effectively negating their presence.

To paraphrase Don Meredith, if you get visited by a bomber, that's just his way of saying you're number 1!

Admit it, you've waited all your life to type the words " to paraphrase Don Meredith."

If you mean I'd never typed them before, you're probably right.
