  1. Who goes around one-starring the hell out of so many threads?

    the funny part is if you leave your cursor on the stars for a second it shows how many r(h)aters have been there, usually 1-4 people!!

    The chief says we gotta live with it even though he agrees with the majority sentiment.

    The worst humans are the ones who are rating Birthday threads and Classified ads!

    I don't pay any attention to the "stars" thing. Who cares what others think or rate...if it interests you open it, read it, reply...or not.

    There are some threads that get a legit 5 star rating. Then there are those that rate their own thread for some reason. I'll down vote an off topic thread. I'll up vote a legit good thread. I think more of the 1 star threads are ones down voted.

    It was ME! No, not really.:D I usually don't even notice them. Like who's a FNG or whatever. Does it really matter. What makes me say "hmmm..." are the threads that have absolutely NOTHING to do with common interest.

    1 star ratings don't usually mean jack, but if a thread has a 5 star rating, it's probably pretty dang good.

    I just gave this thread 2 stars, no reason, which is probably why the ratings make no sense, I have been on here since 2009 and this is the first (and last) time I rate a thread

    The little stars don't bother me as much as OT threads. Prayer request threads, I have a hangnail thread or my buddy has a hangnail thread or obits. Don't get me wrong I have compassion for those folks but I come here to escape all the bullshit life deals us not to get into more of it.

    I've never clicked on any stars, don't know how they work, and usually don't even notice if they are there or not. If a thread interests me I open it and make up my own mind if it is interesting to me or not.

    Sometimes I'll open a thread only because it has one star...just to see what's so bad about it

    I put one star on this thread unfortunately it will not allow me to do it more than once, or even give me a 0 star choice :p

    Never paid any attention to the stars. Now that it has been brought up off to rate the alignment of tires/rims/valve stems thread!

    Hahaha, I don't believe I have ever seen a thread with more ratings than comments! Hell, I don't think I have ever seen a thread with this many ratings!

    1 staring a thread lets everyone know the threads sucks. In the star givers opinion.

    More than 2 stars make go to the bathroom real bad...or is this not the same as at the Thai restaurant?
     
  25. Yeah, but I think somebody spends their time rating threads with one star like it's a game.
     
  26. I just came up from the garage and working on hot rods to look something up and this was the first thread so I thought I would chime in. I noticed a few weeks back that ALL the threads that were being posted had one star ratings. I started a similar thread and the mods ended up looking into it.turns out it was a disgruntled hamber. They took care of him. maybe the same thing is going on?
