Depending on your Web Browser, you can install an Ad blocker like UBlock Origin (Firefox) and select the element on the site you wish to block - it will block the link to the image/text etc and it wont display whatever it is you picked.
Your browser may also have an inbuilt blocker already and you just have to grab the link to the stars and put it in, but an element blocker is easier.
I do it with the Mail Icon and text here as I do not like message.
Other then blocking it with an element blocker, there is no option on ATS to do that.
Chuck didn’t reply, so George swung round in his saddle. He could just see Chuck’s face, a white oval turned toward the sky.
“Look,” whispered Chuck, and George lifted his eyes to heaven. (There is always a last time for everything.)
Overhead, without any fuss, the stars were going out.

Does anyone else dislike stars, or find them a bit distracting when reading posts?
I don't mind seeing flags. A high flag count will sometimes indicate a worthy thread, but I personally find stars distracting.
I like to discuss, and argue, and really am not interested in stars, neither getting, nor giving. I understand that some love their stars and I have no problem with how others feel but for myself I would be more inclined to judge each reply on its own merit.
This is just a suggestion, not sure how difficult it would be to implement, but I for one would avail myself of this feature if it existed.
