If I understand you correctly....you are referring to the box on the right hand side of the forum page that lists "Top Addiction Answerers", right?
Did you happen to look at the bottom of that box where it says "Learn about top answerers"?? Here's what that says:
Please take the time to read it.....I think you will totally change your "take" on this if you simply read what it MEANS. It isn't an AWARD.....none of us are better than any others.......but there ARE people who take time to pay it forward and help and comment and others who don't.
Hopefully, by reading and familiarizing yourself with the yellow stars and the top answerers (which rotate, btw, and never stay the same)....you will gain some understanding.
I have learned one BIG thing in recovery....the more I reach out and help someone else....the more it helps me.
I hope you make the same discovery~
