Are readers of "The Kitchn" picky-picky-picky? Recipe ratings always seem low...

Someone posted a recipe here recently that the poster had found on The Kitchn website. When I looked at the recipe, it seemed like it would be pretty nice, but noted the overall rating was 2.8/5 stars, after over 500 ratings.

When just searching out recipes generally, most of the time the google hits include one or more from The Kitchn, but I shy away from them because they always seem to be 3-star or lower rated, sitting alongside 4.5/5 or higher rated recipes from Foodnetwork or Epicurious or Allrecipes etc. I can't recall ever seeing a recipe from there with even a 4/5 rating, although I'm sure they must exist.

Are readers of that website just a lot more picky than the usual bear?
