A view: I had not noticed the STAR until Dan mentioned it. Why is this board getting more like a social networking site? We already socialize here in what I think is in a professional manner. There should not be a STAR to click on to get points for reputation and a place to evaluate that person. This is just plain silly and unprofessional. I guess this came with the forum package and we have no choice. Looks like this option is available on everyone that posts. Everyone has opinions but having a specific place to provide those opinions of people does not seem proper for our message board. This is a tool that collects these opinions on every message board member and stores them in a database. How is this information going to be used? We have this Member News and Views to submit our views on other topics as I am doing here. However I think we generally stay away from discussing our personal feelings about others. What are your views on this? E.D.
