I think people are too concerned about stars and flags.
Honestly, I don't even give these two things any consideration. When reading a post, it's about the message to me, not about how many stars or flags it has.
Doomsday topics with a ton of stars and flags, if untrue, are still untrue at the end of the day. In my opinion, bickering about ATS point systems and rating systems belies the site's purpose.edit on 21-9-2011 by LeTan because: (no reason given)

Well wouldn't that all depend on the quality of the Gloom and the realistic nature of the Doom? I jotted down some of my favorites here ---> The Ultimate Doomsday Gloom and Doom Thread!

Not sure what the big deal is about stars and flags. Are we allowed to turn them in for sweet ATS items? Honestly, when FEMA takes over they'll probably seek out those with the most stars and flags and send them to the reeducation camps.
It really doesn't matter anyway, we will all be destroyed by ELEnin shortly. DOOM!!!
