Only problem is, the popular five-star template still doesn't work correctly. Thanks to its doesn't-handle-zero-correctly bugs, the spreadsheet fails to always divide expenses properly, allowing one roommate to get away with contributing far less than his "Fare [sic] Share." So did Google release the spreadsheet to gazillions of users without bothering to verify it worked, or did all those Googlers fail to recognize some pretty obvious mistakes?"
