star.jpgHave you heard? In an effort to get a handle on spam and other forms of comment abuse, Weblogs Inc is launching a new system for rating user comments. Write a great comment, and we'll give you a star. Write an offensive or abusive comment, or use the comment system for non-comment use, and you get a star taken away. We'll rank Cinematical visitors by the number of stars by their names, and eventually top commenters will be eligible for perks and prizes. Do note that a star-worthy comment is not necessarily an ass-kissy comment - you don't even have to agree with us, or us with you. We're trying to reward our readers for facilitating and participating in great discussions, and get a jump on comment spam at the same time.

So keep on commenting, and keep an eye on the Top Contributors chart on the right.
