Cool I wish you could give as many stars as you want!

I want to know why if I piss off a mod they take my points? What are points good for anyway is there an ATS gift shop in the lobby or something?


Now where's my star?

Probably guilty as well. Its redundant though. Some people here act like a top secret dossier fell into their lap. Only they were gifted with the knowledge of Whitney Houstons death. Yahoo only let's one person on at a time apparently.

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 ____.

I just had an amazing thought.

Give users the ability to TAKE a star from somebody


Think of the implications!

Relating to the yahoo news/other reposted news from other sites.
I love it, I come to one site, and see everything (well almost) that's going on in the world that day. On top of that is usual inteligent discusion on the topic not like the news sites board which are filled with morons.

Then when I'm done baning my head against the wall from the almost scripted world events I check out the other wonderful things on here. Do I star, only when the comment is above and beyond....flag? if I think the news is worthy of hitting as many people as possible.

But yes, flags may be a bit oversued, but don't loose sleep over it, you could always ignore the stars under ones name and talk to the person,,,,,


Can I Have emy star now?

I wish there was a way for us to know who is the star or flag giver. Quiet often seeing many more stars & flags then replies or comments. Although ive always thought a star is an agreement of a thread or post so many not really need more in put. However to flag a thread and then not comment or leave opinions. Is that just laziness ? Are we just too busy? We really dont gain anything from stars do we.

And actually, regarding the third paragraph I actually agree very much. But, I say that the stars turn into a device for someone skimming the thread to only read what those who have lots of stars say... So it turns into a popularity contest I'd say more often than not haha


But yes, always look past the stars and just contribute! Talk to the person via what they say not what they have!

I wish I even knew what those were or how to get them "up", for that matter why I would want to get them "up" but yes, if you wish to believe that then yes.

Here, quote me if you must:

I am doing this to "up" my Karma points.

Ok THAT I will give you. I guess I aim for originality. Also if I read it somewhere else and then see it here there is a zippy chance of me opening it.

Here to avoid conspiracy I would ask that anyone that has starred me to un-star me.


Oh wait... Crap... Well from here on forward, no stars please? We gotta be fair about things and I've gotten enough. Don't wanna hurt other members' feelings

Haha and I feel bad but I already gave you a star for making me feel bad... So I would give you a star for tactfully editing but cannot. And really you made me feel bad twice so I oew you two stars on top of the one I already gave you



Does that help at all?

What I love the most is seeing the MSM news articles...and then the internet bloggers/conspiracy sites and others pick up the real facts and untwist the twisting if ya know whta I mean.

Sorry for Highjacking the thread....
