2. The weighting/smoothing system makes this worse for places with few reviews.

And as it turns out, "places with few reviews" is actually most of them.

Consider that this tourist trap in Copenhagen has 53 reviews with an average score of 42 and it still manages to get "corrected" by RateBeer so that it ends up with an overall "average" of 53. Potentially quite misleading as this is actually the lowest scoring place in all of Copenhagen (#108 out of #108)!
