E-Mail sent to Reed Hastings @ Netflix in reply to http://blog.netflix.com/2011/09/explanation-and-some-reflections.html
As a professional in computers (Internet, Servers, Workstations, Website Programming, etc) for over 15 years now I do not understand why the ratings will be separated unless Netflix and Qwikster will not be sister companies and owned by two completely different entities.
It certainly would be fairly easy to keep these ratings under one account and then have sub accounts for Netflix Streaming and Quikster Mailing under it.
Additionally, it would be nice if we could rate individual episodes of TV shows (and maybe even track content on a DVD).
On a note of naming: isn't anyone worried that calling it Qwikster is too close to Quickstar (from the owners of Amway)?
