How do you reset a post's star rating?

I've got version 3.1 running successfully with SQL Server, except for one strange thing: I can't get the star rating to reset.

I unpublished the post and ran a SQL update setting the Raters and Rating fields to zero. However, as soon as I republish the post, the rating values are restored.

Any clues on what I'm missing? Assume it something really obvious.
