Crowdrating looks more like Crowdbaiting.
It seems news travels fast in the CF community. This was posted on the Telegraph article about Crowdrating.co.uk -
Crowdfunding charlatans to be named and shamed by new rating start-up

We had these jokers contact us with their abysmally written, critical "report" that was full of factual errors, grammatical errors and schoolboyish criticism of our crowdfunding campaign.
They sent an email with the "preview" report, which was of course terribly critical. They'd never spoken to us and it was full of opinion, factual errors and obviously written with the sole purpose of making us worried it would be published. Then when I replied saying their shoddy and unresearched report is nonsense. They got back to me with the canned email (looked like it was copy and pasted) not addressing any of the issues but a vague "I understand you are unhappy with your rating, you can pay for a review to see if we can change it".
They are complete scammers and I told them so. Luckily their website will have no traffic and anyone who reads the reports (Im guessing the others are similarly terribly written and worthless) will see that these guys are just blackmail artists.
These parasites can't create anything of value themselves so they've resorted to blackmailing small businesses and startups who are trying to raise funds with the threat of publishing a negative report.
I shall consider making a complaint the FCA if they do publish it, not that anyone will read or take any notice of their abysmally written "report".
I've informed the crowdfunding platforms too - hopefully they can warn other startups not to pay these leeches a penny for their mafia style shakedown.
Pretty much exactly what we said below - we do love to proved be right!
