I always thought there was an unwritten rule that both figures would be posted so that all posters are happy and can compare ratings how they like. I think that's why there's been so many +1 arguments lately, and in some cases it seems it's being done deliberately to cause arguments.
I've wanted to post this a few times but didn't want to annoy anybody, I think all those who provide us with the ratings do an excellent job but the +1 arguments are tiresome, and the lack of ratings without +1 (the ones I feel should be used for comparisons, the main reason for this thread) has caused a lot more of them.
I can't speak for everybody but from my POV it would take too long to do the +1 figures separately. And for me the +1 audiences are getting too big to ignore now, so posting just the exc. +1 figures wouldn't be credible (IMO).
If anyone else wishes to post the exc. +1 figures as well, then good luck to them. But I will stick to my way of doing it because it takes long enough to do as it is. Sorry.
