in thread Dealing with CPAN reviews

I agree with Anonymous monk, if theres a PPM included I'll usually give it a very good try - even it that means it has a few teething problems getting it to do what I want. And I also look at a modules release history.

I think its a bit unfortunate that the CPAN rating system hasn't had the usage it was meant to get. I'd say of all the people using CPAN modules, less than 1% of them have made a review on a module. As a result, I usually find myself trolling the monestary when I'm looking for reviews and commments on a module.
