That is a good point you brought up. It is a bit of a popularity contest isn't it? I know when I run across a Phage post I always star it, whether
I read it or not. I am glad to say I don't do that with any one else, but still, I'm sure you and I aren't the only ones that do this of
I wonder how many people have been on ATS since 2008 and know as little about how it works than myself.
1) I don't know how to copy and paste a sentence from someone's post, answer it in mine, and repeat. NOPE all I know how to do is get the entire
quote which could be 4,000 characters long, or just reply and hope I remembered the important parts.
2) I don't know what the "W" or the letter next to it stands for under our Avatars.
I should just be a lurker....but I have such a compulsion to fight ignorance when I see it...I don't seek opportunities because it is mostly
frustrating and futile. I'm not going to have people saying, "oh, yeah, cool, thanks, I really was clueless wasn't I. How was I surviving in this
world without your wisdom?" (actually I might hear that one of these days and to insure the insult add *sarcasm* at the end of it)
You only get flags for threads you start correct? So yep, stars and flags aren't important to me.
But if there was a way to earn a golf shirt or coffee mug......I would be awfully tempted to achieve.
