You are obviously neither dumb nor clueless, I'm just not highly skilled at the art of innuendo.

I'm referring to the hidden mechanism behind the STAR metric, mainly the FuPR, in which we techs are graded for 'inspection performance' using a secret algorithm that magically calculates our personal level of competence/honesty based solely on the future performances of vehicles that we certify as compliant at the time that we inspect them, and which then publishes this calculation for the world to see.

Take care,
