It seems that they trialed the thumbs up/down ratings format on the 19 million new subscribers who signed up in 2016, while us oldsters kept the star system. And a high percentage of the newbies actively rated more titles than the rest of us. Grrrrr, so we get stuck with something that we didn't ask for...
The very best way for Netflix to learn about us, would be to give us the option of picking one or the other. They clearly have the capability to offer varying UIs, and features, yet they insist on never taking advantage of it, slavishly fixating on the blandest presentation they can force upon us.
Dazed and confused over high tech.
Sigh...Concrap. The Internet Overlord Cometh
They're not com-tastic!
