But doing that can leave a thread with an inaccurate feeling.
you cant downstar a post for the same reasons.
So many times a thread gets stars and flags to end up being a joke, and they still remain.
there should be, imo, a system to say I DISAGREE also... youtube has it, and a star system is a half way manner of that.
if you agree, star and flag. no comment on why.
if you disagree, you need to comment but then people see the 100000 flags and 10000000000 stars and wonder why youre a killjoy.
It's rather skewed.
Both can be abused, are abused (how many members say they star every post in certain threads just for fun - many) but it only goes one way..
Edit, a red star, blue star combination... blue stars as they are for the YAY folk, and a red star under it for the NAY folk. that way neither is
negated, and the point is made. More blue than red, your post was considered good.... more red, then .. well thats me..
