I'm not so sure about the notion of reduced weighting and/or dropping old reviews. I understand the reason for it (beer landscape has changed, competition is tougher, etc.) But the disadvantages, it seems to me, are not insignificant. First, it would make everything even more hype-driven than it already is. Second, it would (unfairly, IMO) penalize beers that have established a long record of excellence but aren't attracting the attention of the kool kids. (Maybe 1st and 2nd are opposite sides of the same coin.) Third, it silently drops an individual's review. IOW, if I review a beer years ago, I don't usually update that review unless something changes with the beer. Yet, I COULD re-review if I knew the old one had been dropped. Notifying everyone who's review has been dropped does not seem feasible. Just seems to me like the gain (KBS is hard to catch, so let's fix that by dropping some of those high reviews, under the guise of them being old ...) is not worth the loss.
