Or other people are like me nowadays and give people stars just for turning up in their threads.

Why are you worried about status or flags and stars?
That is not what this is all about. That is what Facebook is about, but not ATS.
ATS is about discussing things, expanding our minds, and finding the truth about many subjects.
Your life is not measured in how many stars you earn. Unfortunately people are groomed to think it matters starting in kindergarten, when you earn stars for accomplishments, and later when children are given trophies for just being there. Giving people some kind of award for just being on a forum is just like the trophy. What does it really prove or matter?
Don't live your life for the stars. Live your life to live.
