Why is there no zero star or worse rating? This scam product would deserve it

Summary: The printer "uses" ink even though the muzzle did not let a single drip through. I hoped to clean the black nozzle by printing large black boxes. Well, the paper stayed nicely white but the ink was "out" after a few pages and the printer refused to continue without having the cartridge replaced. [...
Summary: I bought this a few years ago because I thought it had decent reviews, but little did I know! The photo printing leaves something to be desired, it was grainy and ugly, I've seen better on cheaper printers (this was around $200 when I bought it). The absolute worst part that just embitters me is the fact that the ink comes in the normal 6-color separation, and they run out at different times, even in grayscale!!!
Summary: I was in the desktop publishing business in the 1980s. Companies sent us their printers for evaluation. Since that time I have used or reviewed dozens of printers. Two years ago, a client gave me the Epson R260 so I could print on inkjet-printable DVDs that I was delivering to him. The one piece of good news is that, when it works, the Epson R260 makes beautiful prints on DVD discs. That is the ONLY good news. In every other respect, this is a horrible printer.
Summary: I bought it brand new on 11/17/2007. On 1/4/2008 Ebay sent me an email asking for writing a review. If I did that day I would say it's a great printer, for that price. But today, 1/11/2008, the printer is dead, totally, with the red light on, indicating the ink cartridge is not recognized, although it is the original from Epson. When you got something new, opened the box, plugged in, test it working and working better than what you already have.
