IMDB's response to the "dysfunctional" starmeter is BS

My starmeter was at 32k on Oct 2022, at one point dropped to 10 MILLION and then back up.

Hi there,

When statistical calculations are performed on such a large sample of data, even small variations in popularity can produce significant changes in rank. When an individual is very popular, the average interest of users over time remains fairly constant. With less popular names, it's more common to have sudden and sharp increases or decreases in the number of people who visit their page or see their filmography credits.
