Riddle Me This

Why, if Netflix knows what I’ve recently watched, what categories of movies I may like (“gritty”) and also where I left off in the most recent TV show I had playing, do they continuously ask me to do things like rate Justin Bieber’s Never Say Never?

I just don’t understand this little box Netflix always displays on its homepage.  What’s the marketing reason behind this?  (Everything is a marketing ploy.)  They tell me to rate what I’ve seen to discover suggestions for me, but then right beneath it, they let me choose “haven’t seen it.”  Why are you trying to trick me, Flix?  I know what I’ve seen.

Technology is up to something –– and I’m thinking it’s no good.
