Personally, and no offense meant, I just don't really care to star or flag anything. I don't rate anything by how many stars or flags, as I don't pay attention to it. I could give a crap about anyone around me because all I see are a bunch of self obsessed people- in general- in society I mean. Such a system only exists for people to pat themselves on the back.

Are you sure you're not posting up this thread to get it starred and flagged? =D Just kidding, I usually forget to click the buttons since I am a very forgetful person lol

Apart from egotripping for that poster, I really cant see the point.
As MisterLondon (the post just above me) explains - the system is *supposed* to reward great work, but (as I read while lurking and learnt before signing up) it actually just rewards popularity.
