A New Wrinkle On an Old Suggestion....

I've seen quite a few threads here in BB&Q raising the question of somehow "evening out" the star system with a contrary mechanism; some way to express a dislike or disinterest. Here's my suggestion.

Instead of starring/flagging those posts that you only agree with.....start starring/flagging posts that you find to be utter twaddle and not worth the bits needed to store them on the server. Pretty soon....the perception will flip-flop and threads with multiple flags, and posts with multiple stars will be easily identified as content not worth getting involved with.

That would not solve the problem at would simply compound it.

There is no reason for ATS members to "flag or star" bad content for any reason.

We applaud the good content and the bad stuff is filtered out. It's a very simple concept.
