And if someone has their feelings hurt because they didn't receive a message board honor, I don't think the problem has anything to do with the recognition itself.
No. It's saying new posters have to prove they can meet a certain standard. I don't let just anyone in my livingroom. SunDeck posters can prove they accept and adhere to the rules. And if they want ORG access, they can apply for it.
I don't see the upside of a post like this:
well, yada yada does post a lot, but he tends to take over threads and presents opinions as facts too often. I know he's popular with some, but hardly a hall of famer.
And that might be a tame version of a post.
Brutus, you had an idea. IMO it's a bad one, but worth discussion. If it were put to a vote, you'd get a no from me, and from the general reaction, I think a lot of others agree.
