We most certainly could!
Anywhere that could work as a refuge for us gifted with a more refined taste when it comes to online discussions

So the ammount of agreement a current mod may have is somehow more important than the peoples word.

Picking out a select group of people based on a criteria that is whimsical at best is a sad idea.
I've earned other applause for good posts, I consider them well earned but I did not write them with the intention of garnering brownie points. When I sit down and make a good post it's because I wish to express my opinion. Should my opinion be wholly unpopular I would expect to not receive applause.
I don't like the idea of a merit system being used to decide who may or may not post in select privileged forums. I again state this sounds like elitism to me.
Sure It's not a perfect system, but there is no perfect system. Thinking there is one is pretty naive
3.) To be honest when you say you don't expect to receive an applause for an unpopular idea.. You're just making stuff up to try and back up your argument here - I know that I for one have received applause's for what would be considered "unpopular ideas" in the past. And I know others have as well.
This is all about making ATS a better website and I think a new system for that forum is needed. It's supposed to be the ReallyAboveTopSecret forum.. but right now It's no different than any other.
