I think a more internet wide ranking system is a good idea. Look at ebay, you get to see how many things the seller has sold, and what the reviews
are. Look at ATS, there is the points system below, which also gives a rough estimate of a person's posting quality. (those with orange bars are
supposed to be listened to on any matter no matter what btw
) Or even look at out 'Way Above Topsecret' medallions, same sort of thing. Don't
have to listen to anyone just because they have a high ranking, but you might be more likley to be less dismissive if a news outlet has had a high
rank for a long time.
Really, thats what things like the Pulitzer Prize and whatnot indicate too. I mean, sites like Rense will never get good ranks, because they have
journalistic integrity, they're a tabloid. Many talboids operate by simply accepting whatever is submited to them, with no real fact
checking or review process, thats what rense is like.
