Default N/A not available in comment ratings

I have some of my ratings set to have N/A as an option. The original poster of the review can choose the N/A no problem, but if someone comments on the review and rates it they cannot choose N/A. It's not listed as a rating option. Any ideas?

If the Author posts N/A then it means that the item shouldnt be rated.

Think of it like this:

A review on a game:
graphics 1-10
sound 1-10
multiplayer n/a-10

If the author chooses na it means the game has no multiplayer. If the members could still rate it even though it is na, then they could skew the results. Therefore the na is for authors only and is set by the author.

Does that help ?!?

I see what your saying. Still using your example from above:

Author chooses Multiplayer = NA

I go and comment on the review yet I am able to choose 1-10 for Multiplayer. This doesn't seem right if the Author originally choose N/A. So therefor I choose 5 while the author chose N/A, so I am skewing the ratings.

A user (not the author) can comment rate on a NA vote?!?
