Message board makers are always trying to make their message boards more interesting. Take, for example, the nifty new rating system tacked onto this board. You can give people 1, 2, 3, 4 or even 5 whole stars.

But who's going to give someone anything but 5 stars? Now really. I mean unless someone is an arse and everyone gives them a 0. But there's no real in betweens. You're a member of this board, or you're an idiot making negative posts and getting bad ratings. I want pretzels.

you guys are probably right, they're a lot like brownie points, in that it makes people feel good ... or bad.. about themselves. i dont see the real the point though, since they eventually just get exploited and lose meaning... not that they had THAT much meaning to begin with... but you know what im saying

Ratings are fun for a limited amount of time but the sad thing is that we live in a society where we all want to be rated the best. So compeditive and barbaric. Magazines, newspapers, and television rate our movies, books and music...we cant even make our own ratingsd. But the ratings here are different, we [the people] can make our own opinions.However, Cant we live in a world where everyone is expected to be a 5, we shouldnt have to tell them. I would like to think im a 5 as well as all of you (or maybe im too trusting).

Very inciteful Brend. It's further perverted by what's going on in our schools and baseball fields. Children are, no matter they suceed or fail, are unconditionaly rewarded. You're not allowed to tell a child that they arn't right. There are no longer wrong answers. Ive heard of kid's sports leagues where every team just 'ties' at the end and everyone gets a championship trophy.

I really fear what that generation is going to be like when they grow up. They are cut off from the real world by a gentle curtain of TLC by the PTA. What will they do when they have to deal with dissapointment? It's not guns or SUV's or cigarettes that's going to destroy this world.. it's our own children who are being bred in this perverted education system.

There's some education for ya
