I finally figured out how to use the system, to help me navigate through all the random Clutter, Angry, Ranting comments. If a person has been
posting for a long time, and they only have a few stars, like 1 - 1/2 or less per post, Don't bother reading or replying, The stuff they say,
isn't worth a gold star. I call them the 1 stars.
You get Lightening Bolts for being nice in your comments, staying on topic, and not getting baited into "changing the mind" of the 1 stars above.
I know this because, I never rant, etc, and I had over 80 lightening bolts. So, since I had so many bolts to spare (lol) I experimented, and
belittled, harassed and pushed back on one of the one stars.
Yup, I lost my Boltzzzzz. I tried to loose sleep, really I did!!!
But now I know; if a person has a bunch of posts and hardly any lightening bolts, This tells me they are trolls, derailers unable to stay on topic,
mean, angry baiters. So, I ignore, and simply don't reply. Unless I have some magical words of wisdom that will stop them dead in their tracks and
think about the stuff they say, which I don't.
We all know what a flag is, if the 1 star, is a 3 flagger. RUN!!!!!!!
