re: The secret to getting your work critiqued online

Just for grins, I wrote a new post in the "non-fiction" section yesterday. This morning I checked to see about the "reviews and replies." There were 11 reviews and 0 replies (fine by me).
However, looking over the posts for August there were 6 new posts (non-fiction), with 246 reviews and 2 replies. I don't know why, but I too find these stats to be very interesting.
I don't suppose, and this is like throwing eggs on a wall, we could have some type of automatic rating system - say from 1 - 10 at the bottom of the "add a comment" section. Maybe it could read: "Please rate this post from 1 to 10" with a square block added.
It appears some aspiring writers have followed your suggestion, "critique - to be critiqued" without success.
You understand, of course, this is only an observation from my point of view.
