Hi dyuvraj,

Unfortunately this is a known bug with the ratings component. We are integrating a a new version of ratings and expect to have it in the November or December build. Basically the current version of ratings utilizes web calls, which generate the errors you are seeing. The new version of ratings utilizes the object model only.

Also the new version of ratings will allow both podcast series and podcasters to be rated.
