Sorry to put you off. Here's the thing: I'm not actually a disinformation agent!

So one would think a positive position would require a post explaining why ... just like a disagreeing post is expected to, no? Why does the positive view get the easy way out with just a star, no discussion?

Please contribute to the ongoing discussion as mentioned here.

Okay will do

I saw one of the mods giving a reason not that long ago which I agree with. ATS is supposed to be a positive place. So stars are a positive thing a negative star or removing a star would be a negative thing. Negative systems can get used for negative reasons. Positive systems do not. I might be a little of though. I think it was ArMap by the way. Why do I agree ? I tell you why. For some reason a post fails your quality standard yet it gained a star from someone that agrees or has a lower standard then you. Who are you to deny them to star the post for whatever reason they have to star a post. The same counts for the receiver of the star. The only thing you got for an option is to post that you think the post sucks and why. Really when you or your reason or both even are ignored, your thoughts are wasted on them. But... I'm sure that there will be a reader that reads your contribution and thinks... Damn... He's right I never thought of it that way or doing it like that. Lets face it... The world is full of dumb and ignorant people, among them however there are some that do want to learn and are open to another opinion. Let the ignorant follow en masse the nonsense posted cause those who look a little further will get filtered out. I'm sorry to bother you with such a long reply. Anyway... Take care and have a nice Christmas. ~ Sinter

A very good reason, it's the negativity people don't need.

The reason i posted this idea(Old Idea) was because I'm a sucker for getting involved with ignorant posters being insulting and rude

I just wish I had a Button to press to express my dissatisfaction rather than having to post, I know it's best to ignore but sometimes it's hard

Great post and have a nice Christmas yourself


Serious question: How many times does this thread topic have to come up? There are a gazillion threads on this topic, why not just add to one of them? Especially since there isn't any new or interesting suggestions here?

Okay! keep your pants on!
sorry to bore you

Happy Xmas.

Man I cant believe you are any where close to this thread. You really are one of the last people I would expect to see here. your threads seem so trollish to be as kind as possible. Maybe not unintelligent but the way you post them with the title so controversial and then disappear to not even debate them. You really have some gall.

I was thinking about you when I decided to post here and well I'm just say'in.



I think that is fully expressed in the threads as they are being commented on. Quite whining
