Not all fair rated books are fair. Put enough dialect slang and/or foreign 
words into a book, and what would have been a good rating can easily become 
fair. Also, if you submit a book and forget to change the default 
rating, its rated fair. While I understand and share your frustration with 
books that are full of garbled text, missing words and the like,  its worth 
noting that there are sometimes books that are unjustifiably rated fair. If you 
download one and it turns out to have earned its rating, you can always nuke 
it. I still have problems with the idea of lots of errors and legible 
throughout. To me, those are not compatible concepts.
