How do members get Star ratings with poor grammer/English?

I was wondering how so many members are showing up with Star Ratings when they (not all, but quite a few) have such poor sentence structure, grammer, and language? Some of the members with Stars have discussions so poorly phrased that I can barely make out what it is they are trying to say. I also see members with Stars asking novice-like questions -- shouldn't those with Stars have a better understanding of their role here and how the system works? Just how do you get a Star, and what are the qualifications to get one and keep one? So far I do not see too much sense in the whole thing.

I've often wondered about that myself. I have seen the reverse, too. People that seem to give good, full answers to questions and they have a low rating. I've seen some people with 4-5 star rating but I felt they gave the best response to some questions. According to MyLot the chance of getting revenge rated, dropping your star number, doesn't happen, but I think they're wrong. I think the star system is a little faulty.

Well everyone once they have made a 100 posts gets a star. Now the rating in the star can vary quite a bit from a 1 to a 10. I very seldom see anyone with real poor writing skills get above a 7. When it's so bad that it is hard to read then they usually do not have a high star rating.
