I have to agree 100%. It's really irritating, to say the least. I don't even know why it matters so much. Human nature, I suppose? Are we really so
prideful that we need to feel.. knowledgeable?
Still, like you, I'd hardly ever star the first post. If I think a thread deserves more attention (whether I agree with it or not), I'll flag it. In
the case of me agreeing, it's usually because the thread matches my beliefs. Yet I'd still flag threads I disagree with, for example, threads that
are open minded and have some active debaters in it.
That's all that should matter, anyways. Not someone's reputation, not argument from authority; "if Phage says it, it must be true!", but pure,
unbiased, truth - facts. That's all that should matter.
