There are some posters that were not included as CRT members because they didn't register in 2000 or weren't subscribers, but have already established their credibility on redszone as valuable posters. If there are people that were included to post in the CRT forum that members don't feel have completely established their credibility, there is a way for those members to rate them negatively to express that as well. MWM was just making a list of people he thought fell into the "established credibility already, but not already added" category and sharing that list with other people, in the event others felt the same way about that poster. Its not like he has naked pictures of us that he's going to share with everyone, if we don't "rate" those people, he was just offering up a list of familar names.
This system is new for all of us. Hopefully, if it works the way it should, it will make redszone a better place. I know I personally am not going to rate another person unless I feel they absolutely deserve that rating, either good or bad, and I definately will not be rating someone just because someone tells me to.
RL, great response, I hadn't thought of this, and agree that there are many individuals that didn't make the cut to CRF at the get go that deserve to be here for their efforts over the years. Thanks for clarifying. My point I guess is that those that have been around know who they are and should make that determination on their own. I understand that MWM had good intentions, all I'm saying is that it can easily be misconstrued and lead to exactly what we are trying to avoid.
