Begging For App Ratings:

I’ve just submitted a new version of Delicious Library 3, and I’m scared out of my head that the first two or three people who review it won’t like it, which will tank it to the extent where nobody discovers it any more, so there won’t be any positive reviews to balance them out.

Probably the most well-argued case I've seen for devs bugging users to rate something.  The strange disincentive to release updates to well-rated apps seems, well, insane.  What a broken system.
