My personal guess that that jude11 is a well known, well liked, and popular poster. I am sure there are many ATS members who see his name on the recent posts page and immediately click, read, and star this members posts. That can sometimes lead to situations this.
So my best advice? Let's take our trust in the more respected members one step further than just reading their replies to a thread. Let's assume that they replied to the thread because they found it interesting or worth commenting upon - and then read the entirety of the thread ourselves!
Doing this is the best way to recognize all quality contributions and lets us find some of the newer or lesser known members who have much to offer the community!
