We feel that it is important to include the additional decimal place. Why? Because then consumers are able to garner a more specific idea of the reviewer’s intentions when they left their review of the business.
If a review site rounds up, this can give poor businesses an unfair advantage against other, more deserving businesses.
If a review site rounds down, it can aim to hurt businesses that deserved a 4.5 but instead got a 4.
