Well I was talking about the stars next to your avatar
The star system in ATS as you know ?
Point is that it gives a distorted 'view'
And that it leads to star collection.
Without this star system ATS would do better.
is it stealth social/media manipulation ?

what if some members are hacking the stars on ATS
That would like...invalidate everything!
Actually, they are exclusively members who joined prior to a certain date. This, of course, would depend upon your opinion of what "excessive" means.
Members with an excessive amount of stars are usually skeptics.
