I say.... screw the stars.
I generally only give them out when someone has taken their time in the creation of their post, said something meaningful, or denied ignorance.
Today, I witnessed the most blatant abuse of stars ever... or maybe it was just due to the ignorance that is prevalent.
Some jack wagon, responded to an article that I presented, and instead of actually addressing any of it...
This person decided to pull everything out of context... apply some random 'it's propaganda' spin to it, and then claim that I work for a three
letter group. The next thing you know, this person has about a dozen stars and actually said nothing meaningful. It was three sentences that didn't
actually address any of the information presented. What was said was incredibly inaccurate. As well, this person then decided to go on a personal
attack against me.... all of which received stars? wtf....
There are sooo many intelligent people that contribute meaningful information to this site, and it's not reflected in their star count... that I
stopped paying attention to stars. I hand them out, sparingly... and if I receive them... it means nothing, at least nothing that truly matters.
I could have simply replied to this thread with some one liner, and then adding '2nd' underneath it, and probably received 20 stars... but is that
really what this is about? Well for some people it is.... those some people are the ones that probably won't amount to jack ____.
