Well perhaps you want a star also?

But who owns that data? You, jackburton-ga, Google?

My friend if stars were the only things in life for persons, we would
all be in trouble.

Furthermore, just the fact that you take your time to commnet on this
isssue and the fact that I now have to take my time to answer your
comment is sick.

Perhaps another questons?

Does jackburton-ga really own his stars or ratings?

How did I acquire the stars to give out?

Were the stars really mine to gove away orwere the Googles?

Are these "Google Police" or "First Amendment" issues?

100% of nothing is nothing

Something of someting is something.

According to eBay spokesman Kevin Pursglove said the company agrees
that the ratings are important and claims they are proprietary but
says the ratings belong to

eBay, not the sellers.

If you or anyone else feels the same, maybe  you can go to ebay and
purchase "Google Stars & Ebay Stars from me "gottahavejesus", or just
look up in the search area

within eBay "Google Answers Stars "  or Ebay Stars" and then "Whammy",
givea negative feedback and perhaps even send me the star(s) or half
star(s) back to me, give them others or keep it yo might need some.

My kindness regards,

I have absolutely no idea what you expect in an answer. If you are
truly asking a question, can you clarify what it is that you're
asking, and give some indication of what you expect from a Google
Answers Researcher?

Hello condoleeza-ga,

When you signed on to the Google Answers service, you agreed to adhere
to the Terms of Service of the site:

a set of 14 provisions covering liability, confidentiality, payment
protocol, refunds, and blah, blah, blah.

Though not explicity stated, I think the use of GA can fairly be
construed to include the 'star' system as well -- you are granted, by
Google Answers, an option to post anywhere from one to five stars as a
way of indicating your pleasure (or lack thereof), for a particular

The stars are absolutely yours, to use (or not) as you see fit.  

But the stars are also the property of Google Answers, in the sense,
that they can presumably opt to eliminate the star system, if they so

It's sort of like buying software.  The software is yours...but it's
also the software company's.  You can run it on your PC as often as
you please, but you can't copy it willy-nilly and pass it out to your
friends without running the risk of incurring the wrath of Big Brother
Software, Inc.

Welcome to life in the Internet Age! many stars to I get?

Cheers, little ears.

condoleeza-ga rated this answer:5 out of 5 stars and gave an additional tip of: $5.00

Police will allow me and 5 buck from te Federla Reserve.

By the way did yo know that the Federal Reserve is a Private For-Profit Corp.? 

Thanks For The Answer,
