When you see a group of stars along side a thread heading does that mean it's a popular thread? I ask because down in Electronics there is a GPS thread that does not seem to be especially popular as to responses or views. It's not a dead thread but it does not seem to stand out. And who puts stars on threads and what is the standard? It's early in the morning as I write this. I'm drinking coffee and waiting for the morning papers. I bore easily. Thanks.
