Wordpress Plugin: Comment Rankings

Gary King has created a new plugin called Comment Rankings which displays stars in a post’s comments next to a comment authors name. The stars correspond to the total number of comments the person has made. The default setting is 10 comments per star. If you hover over the star count it will also display the persons total number of comments.
To change the default star value you have to edit the plugin file and there is nothing in place to avoid a long row of stars for a prolific commentor, or in the most obvious case the blog owner. You can see in the picture below how long the row of stars can get.
This plugin is a little unrefined at the moment, but I think at the very least it’s worth keeping an eye on.
