The text on page 4 says that a high well behaved score is a hint not to 
take a bad rating too seriously.  (If that's not what it's supposed to 
mean, the text needs to be rewritten.)

Like I said, that seems awfully specific to spam filtering.  I think I 
understand what it means in an online abuse context, but I don't 
understand what it means anywhere else.

The other optional attributes seem adequately generic, but this one is 
just odd.
