Default Rating and catagorizing gripes

I propose that we start a rating and catagorizing system for gripes. Such as:
Catagories:
A) embarkation/debarkation
B) fellow passenger behavior
C) service
D) weather/seas
E)Food
F) travel agent
G) entertainment
h) shore excursions
Etc and so on
Then a rating for the gripe. from 1 (as less severe )to 10 (as extreme).
For example cold toast would be a level 1 food gripe as opposed to a dead mouse in your soup being a level 10 food gripe.

This way we could post our gripes quite succinctly.
Such as Carnival Legend, April 14 ,2003 A6; B4, C7, F9
(meaning you had a moderately severe boarding problem, a relatively minor problem with other passenger behaior; a really bad service experience and a horrible TA.
Your whole cruise could be summarized in ten or twelve charactors.
What do you think?

Damn, PB. You want to take all the fun out of griping. Your system doesn't allow for venting and ranting. Maybe if this was done in the cruise reviews section it would be more properly placed.

It actually allows for more venting and ranting in a smaller space. Yiu just choose more catagories and use higher and higher numbers over and over again.
If the food really sucked on a cruise, instead of going into detail all you have to do is go
E10!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!. Says it all.

Can yoy tell I have too much time on my hands today?

Meat, that means it's the protein, you need it, like the famous diet!

Hmmmm - dead mouse, lousy soup. Live mouse, good soup (cold?) But not for the vegetarians....

Ok, this is getting a bit sick, I'll stop now :-)
