I support the call for a ratings system to be introduced to BBO. The star rating is fine but it does not go far enough. The self-rating system is being abused and causing frustration. Ideally, the rating system should apply to all players, but if this is not considered desirable for any reason whatsoever, then there could be a section of the club where only rated players may play and where their ratings are displayed to other players. In other words, the Main Bridge Club could remain unrated, but there should be a Rated Bridge Club where members can be confident that the other players at the table are of the desired level.
