 * priority:  normal => low


 Just noting that it looks like some plugins post_meta got out of sync, due
 to the cron only picking up recently added reviews. Removing a review
 doesn't trigger any syncing and that causes it to ultimately be out of

 When a spam review is removed, the next review added after that will
 trigger the resync. Because the action of adding a new review clears out
 the bad data, this makes this even more low-priority in my eyes.

 Fixing this by using the underlying `WPORG_Ratings` class rather than post
 meta would probably make sense.
 As a temporary work around I just ran a script to resync all the rating
 counts (commit following)
