I suppose that over time i'd be both helpful and unhelpful in posting. The funny thing is that being labeled either would be uncomfortable in different ways. Do you imagine I'd want my post to be rated "best" answer any more than I'd like to be considered unhelpful?

If this were a forum about transmissions or spark plugs, I can see the benefit of encouraging expert factual responses and discouraging others. On a forum about mental health issues it seems less a good idea. To the extent Babble is a community, I don't see it as appropriate. In a community, all members should be valued because all members are part of the community.
