Also, the "predicted ratings" system works well for me - I've learned the hard way that regardless of how much the critics drool over something, if the Netflix rating tells me I'll only like it three stars' worth, that's the way it will be, and I might as well just boot those suckers right off the list so that something I'll like better will move up. (Anything under 3.5 stars goes bye-bye except for very unusual circumstances.)
3.5 stars? You have high standards.

Most people consider 3 stars to be fair and good enough.
I understand where she's coming from. With about 250 titles in my queue right now, plus more coming out all the time, life is just too short to watch a bunch of ... well, crap. The system isn't always right, but it's right enough of the time to make a difference. Now, if you're someone with only 20 or so titles in your queue, it won't make much of a difference. *shrug*
