Have many of you used this website to check out/rate your professors?
A couple of semesters ago, someone told me about the site and I have found the ratings to be very helpful in selecting professors.
Have you found the ratings to be pretty accurate of past professors?

FYI -- Some professors play games with the site by posting things about themselves and their friends.
A few have also site to try to hurt the careers of their political enemies. So, you are right to take the information provided there with a big grain of salt. Some of it is totally bogus.
It's the equivalent of having a site where your patients and co-workers could post comments about YOUR performance. Imagine how some people would use it against you for personal reasons -- and how you and your friends could use it to make annonymous comments about yourself and each other. It's the same for professors.
