It's not like flags and stars are some kind of precious commodity to be horded in case the shtf in some distant future event.
If I can spread a little joy and "atta boy" around on the www., so be it.
I give flags and stars to people with clever user names, good spellers, people that know the difference between there and they're, students, even
trolls if they are in the least bit amusing, women that show themselves in their avytar, saxophonists, people that wear bifocals, bald men, dog
lovers, amputees, and poets. I even flag and star people that I know hate my guts.
For God's sake; it's entertainment not a competition sport. I do however get a hint of a popularity contest in progress.
