Different reasoning: It wasn't Coppola's later work (which granted I haven't seen much of) that held me back from a higher rating but The Conversation and Apocalypse Now. But despite not liking them, I still rated Coppola high because of the directorial feats of G1 and GII.

If Romanek and his fans are holding up Never Let Me Go as his best work, sounds like he was lucky not to get a negative score!
Those are my principles, and if you don't like them... well, I have others.

Lol, the rug returns! I'm that 10 again, though I've only seen two (The Long Day Closes and The Deep Blue Sea). Both are amazing.

I'm surprised that Miike is so divisive.  A 0, really?  Perhaps that person only saw some of his extreme cinema and not some classics like 13 Assassins.  Or even Audition.

I'm pretty sure I'm not the 0 on Miike. I think I'm a 2. Seen both 13 Assassins and Audition. Actually, pretty much only those.

Bondo, you are not the zero, and I'm less surprised by Miike making the list than I am by Ken Burns, where again Bondo, you are not the lowest Rating. What do people have against Ken Burns, especially among a group that rate Frederick Wiseman so highly?

Not the lowest on Burns, but among the highest on Wiseman. I don't really see why that is confusing, very different styles ultimately.
