you can also "flag a thread"
at the top of the page on teh right hand side,
there is an option to "flag" and this shows you like the OP (oped)
and or strongly agree with the information or topic covered.
this is the mecanism that gets ops on the front page
star and flag means
star (i like what you said in this post)
flag (i like what you wrote in the op)
hope this helps
