Oh, and how can anyone tell when they are replying to a a big yellow star post if that person earned his or her star the old fashioned way, by actively participating in discussions and posting well composed questions that encourages the participation of others? Of if the person is, say, a troll, or new to the board, or a crazy person who just spent an insane amount of time posting and replying on a board without a real purpose?

It's very simple: Just reply to the message and stop wasting your time trying to figure everything out about the author.

Or do like I do, assume everyone (except me) is an idiot until they prove otherwise.

Joelsenior, Goldstar so I must know what I'm talking about
