Why do you have to rate discussions?

I've been wondering why we rate discussions as far as who had the best response. I have been doing it but find it very difficult since I feel that the vast majority of replies are genuine and find it very hard to choose. I hate to make one feel more important in their response than the other. Especially when they are all good. Why do we do this?

well the word is "Competition" my friend. It keeps everything going at the pace its going. Its the natural human tendency to achieve success in which ever field he is. And the rating keeps the push on and keeps this mylot working every time.

If you don't like to rate, don't rate. Noone force you to rate. For me, I rate because this topic is good, I think I should be rated to let everyone know that there is a good topic for them to read. But i do not always rate, if i see good topics or good responses i rate. If not, i do not rate. That's the start stand for!
