I'm asking if the stars and flags are redundant when looked at from the point of view that they represent solid ATS content

I have heard there was some sort of "problem" where certain individuals had their star and flag counts inflated ridiculously due to some sort of database change.
I can only assume they have become paid lizard people shills.

Forget the stars and try to look at the content they create.
Stars are bull# since TBTB (^^) messed with them.
Stars are totally messed up and I don't pay attention to the star count anyone has.

Stars and flags are mostly irrelevant. The longer you are here, the more you acquire. And as you said, you don't have to be a stellar poster to get them. But as was said, you look at the posters content. Get to know them. Forget the bling. Think of stars as the type of car a poster drives. It may look flashy, but it has nothing to do with who they are, or how smart they are.
