    I don't see how asking a question warrants a rating. Not that I really care. But didn't even express an opinion above. I just wondered out loud if this was the best time to get into a whole Israel/Palistinian thing.

    As anyone who knows my post from way back when, I far prefer to discuss political philosophy and policy. And yet I still don't feel strongly enough to declare an opinion on wether this is a good time though.

    Rating someone a 3 or a 1 or a 4 for just inducing a thought seems inapropriate to me. But by all means, it is your right.

    Cheers

    •  I rate according (none)
      to whether I think the post added to the discussion or detracted from it. We need more nuance. ; )  A 3 means that I thought your comment was GOOD, gamoto (credit to those who get that last word). So a good question is a good thing which pushes the depate forward. I am against grade inflation though I have contributed to it. <g> Cheers.
