Thread Starring

Just curious, do many of you make a habit of starring threads anything other than 1-Star or 5-Star?

I have probably starred 50 threads and cannot recall ever using stars 2, 3, or 4. I think the main reason is that I only star a thread if it makes an impression on me. Impressions are usually positive or negative, I have never been moderately impressed to give a thread a 3-star

What about you guys?

Well, I come from the land of TF2. We do there. I see there is no thread rating in this section tho.

The only forum they should have thread rating in is one of the few they don't - the Suggestions/Ideas forum.

I was completely oblivious to thread starring until this thread made me look right, and sure enough, some threads have stars. Good for you.
