I noticed people asking for beginners music or expert music, WHAT IF... ultimate-guitar made it so not only can you rate how good the tab is... but how hard/easy it is to play it!

sorry if there is a thread about this already, if so link me?
From my knowledge, the tab difficulty is based on how difficult it is to read the tab, not play it.

Take a few lines with numbers, compared to a structured tab with proper notation such as timing, rhythm, and note duration.
I've always used it the way yawn has pointed out. If a tab's shit then it should be rated badly, if it's hard to play then it should say 'difficult'.

Why do we feel it's necessary to yak about bullsh*t in order to be comfortable?

That's when you know you found somebody special. When you can just shut the f*ck up for a minute, and comfortably share silence.
