Back in october I got a private message that stated this:
"Please do not use the rating system to post 1-star reviews on any particular member. The rating system is used to judge the quality of the content of a thread, and it is a mis-use to use it to "punish" another member you disagree with."
Then why keep the star rating system if some people can't handle a one star rating for their topic? I would get plenty of one star ratings on my topics from the people here that REALLY dislike me for thinking out of turn.
I see a topic that I would give a 0 star rating in the lottery discussion forum, due to it's incredible dullness.
I also started an outside blog
