    I don't know- I think that you start out with a fairly positive rating (the "distinguished road") and then if someone gives you a negative rating (accompanied with a comment such as "you suck" or whatever), it goes down. I think clicking the star to give a +point to someone's reputation is a bit like clicking the 'like' button on a facebook post- generally agreeing with them or the general gist of their post, but you can give ratings just because if you want. And thanks!

    Ah yes. It is approve or disapprove of the post. Well, I've done my bit. The rest is up to you.

    Who in the hell cares what "status" they are given by the rest of the people here? Is everyone 12 years old? The point of the forum is to discuss things and debate different aspects and views; inevitably there will be arguing and dissent. Why does this "distinguished road" bullshit even factor in?

    "Uh oh, I had better watch what I say, someone might give me a bad click."

    Given the majority of those bearing "Distinguished Road" status, I'm quite happy to be an unknown quantity. Some of my favorite people in life have been unknown quantities.

    Ask Lenny Bruce how much sleep he lost over being an unknown quantity.
    I'm not too keen on it either to be honest, and also feel it's rather pointless. It doesn't bother me at all what my 'reputation' on an internet forum is, I just found it funny that people use it to anonymously insult others in quite a juvenile way.

    I think someone should start a thread about Morrissey as a religious icon, if not in word certainly in deed.

    I am surprised at how many fans speak about him with almost religious reverence, possibly without even realising it.

    I would do it myself but I suspect it won't get lift off.

    People feel Morrissey has saved them, been for them when they were in need of comfort. Reminded me again of Jesus ie, personal saviour.

    People also speak of him in revered tones and then worry about upsetting him for fear of his wrath or to keep with religious terms, they he might smite them.

    It just got me wondering about the extent that modern day celebrities have become today's religious icons. Not saying anything revelatory I know, but I though it might make for an interesting thread.

    My threads touch on the technicalities of the whole being Jesus thing, not the reverential rapturous stuff, though I totally support that. All come all ye faithful and whatnot.

    You have if you've heard Morrissey's solo version. Except Morrissey at least gets the lyrics right.

    It's so weird to think Morrssey's somewhere in my neighborhood now or in the near future. He may be sitting in a bus down the street from the DMV where I have to go renew my driver's license. (Oddly i learned it was expired in Vegas when I tried to get a players card at Caesar's Palace. ) He might have driven past the courthouse where I serve jury duty. (Pomona's our government center.) Sooooooooooooooo weird. I like it.
