Once upon a time, there was a math community amongst the ocean. The really bright sharks dominated this math community while a tiny anchovy quietly sat back learning. After years of admiration, the anchovy decided to mimic and contribute to the math forum by donating a problem. After racking its tiny cortex for many days, it finally came up with a decent problem. It rated the problem a 5. The sharks laughed at the anchovy and promptly solved it. They demoted it to a level 1 problem and ate the anchovy. applause

The moral is that people, myself included, lower problem ratings in case it is really easy. It's a way of seeming humble while saying "That's right. Proving Riemann's Hypothesis is a level 2 in my book." Makes it harder to level up, I'm glad you pointed this out.
