I don't think that's what that comment suggests. The commenter is acknowledging that some people give one star just to have their comment seen, even though they think it's a good app, but that he personally is giving one star because he thought it was indeed awful.

I saw it as that he is giving 1 star because he wants the comment to be seen, but actually thinks it was awful (implying that he wouldn't give 1 if it wasn't awful). Either way the grammar certainly taxed my parser...

You misread that. It says "I hadn't gave 1 star just because I want my comment gets shown on top"

He is saying he hasnt only given 1 start to be at the top, he actually does think the app is terrible
