There is a number behind the rating. So if your relation count is 59 you are “neutral” with 60 you would be “open”. After 2 Days the relation degrades by 1 point (for example) which would put you right back to neutral.
This way the degration looks a lot stronger than it actually is.
We are considering to add the actual relation number in bracktes, so you have a clearer picture of your exact standing.
