3. "Par for the course"
4. "Not too bad at all"
2. "I don't really like that"

I get so many emails about choosing products, and when I tell them "it depends on your requirements" etc they always respond with "yeah, but which one would YOU pick?" - ARGH!  ::)

There you go, the official unofficial DaveScale

1 = "Bloody Awful"
2 = "Really don't like it at all"
3 = "Par for the course"
4 = "Not too bad at all!"
5 = "Sex On A Stick!"

Dave.

I get asked that on occassion and my response is "How much are you willing to spend?"
At that point I give them a few options based on what I think is good for that kind of money.

I like your choices, It certainly sounds like what Dave would say :-)

The range of the scale is to short.
It's missing the important entry: "What a heap of $H!T!"

And, what's about:"That's pathetic..." and "an epic fail..."

Wow we completely missed those. Scale of 1-10 now... Unfortunately, most of these refer to low numbers, like 1 or 2...so...
