One of the things that drew me to mylots was that as a forum it allows more of a discussion base than other, similar sites. As a relative Newbie, I only occasionally visit, and post to questions. While doing that this morning I happened to notice that my rating had dropped, and my star color went from a FERTILE GREEN, to a FERTILIZER BROWN,,,LOLOL. Believe this before proceeding. "I DON'T CARE." I find the experience enlightening in some valid posts, and LUDICROUS to the point of laughter in rating others. I assume that an OPINION certainly can be JUDGED, even disputed or disagreed with, but does that strictly make MINE less valid than ANY OTHERS??? While I am often irreverent to a degree, I'm also blatantly honest in sites like this, and obviously,,,even though I state NO OFFENSE MEANT,,, some must take offense,,,BIG SIGH. With regard to status here, or in the real world, I"M """WAAAAAAAY""" OK with mine, and not at all vain or ego centered. To ASK FOR anothers opinion then rate it as INVALID, suggests, TO ME, that the opinion of the asker is questionable. With regard to INCOME HERE,,,and with all due respect to any who use the COMP for income,,, I DON'T, nor could I possibly survive on pennies per day. I suggest that to have a different opinion is not only a right, but probably is part of the balance of Things, thought, and expression. To RATE anothers opinion suggesting it's invalid is IGNORANCE.

first fo all dont use capitals and soo amny commas and punctuation so very often... see guidelines for do's and dont's so that you will get better idea why your rating dropped. when you'll start working accordingly then you'll gradually gain abck your star again even reach the higher ones. http://www.mylot.com/o/guidelines.aspx

With all due respect, thank you for the reply/comment. Admittedly I haven't read the instructions yet, and as a Guy, perhaps I'm thinking "I can put this together anyway?" Now the respect part. Are you telling me that not only is what we say a factor(as it should be) but HOW we express as well? YIKES! Thankfully and very honestly I truly don't care about ratings or income, but certainly I am curious, and about the other mysteries as well. I do appreciate the heads up, and Oh by the way, did I use too many "caps" or punctuation marks in this re-comment? Anyway.... thankfully there are no "Spelling Police" lurking.

This star rating appears to be a complex thing and is disturbing most of the members . It basically denotes our activity on this site . We need not worry much about it . My star rating also twinkling like a star and it is down and up and down and down ... pls see more about this star rating system at a discussion started by Mylot staff: http://www.mylot.com/w/discussions/573319.aspx
