Another forum I am active with has "thumbs up"/"thumbs down" buttons for each post near the posters post count. It shows #thumbs up,#thumbs down, and percentage. The count is the total the poster has on all threads. It helps distinguish who gives reliable info and who doesn't.
Why do people not respect us as they do other tradesmen? Because every Tom, Dick, and Harry doesn't think he can be a plumber or electrician!
