Oh, c'mon. Relax. Looking at your own scores: Wats, Karma, Posts, Flags, and stars, you're just under the threshold for having a border of your own.
The fact is (and you know this) the "badge" system has changed many times since you and I joined. It used to be much more ostentatious and complicated
than it is now. It's also much more diffficult to get to those levels. With the old way of doing things I think you and I would both be gold, but not
I look upon it like this. If you have high scores, all that means is that you've been here awhile, probably steadily, and that you have made
contributions to the threads that your fellow posters have deemed useful enough to point them out. They don't buy you anything, so they are not any
kind of currency. It's just a little minor recognition. I really see nothing wrong with that, and complaining about it shows a bit too much
concentration on it. In other words, whoring for stars and borders and complaining about stars and borders is pretty much the same
thing--concentrating too much on stars and borders.
