I dont like this system, it enforces newbies to pay great homage to what otherwise can be 'average' advice, just because someone has replied to a desperate poster needing help.
Also, if you started the thread but disagreed with the advice somewhat, but not enough to post a reply, do others think you are ignorant because you havent responded to those that have taken the time to give you a reply ? ...... nah best keep clear of all that imho
