“The reasonable man adapts himself to the world.
The unreasonable man persists in adapting the world to himself.
Therefore, all progress depends on the unreasonable man.”
It is always in the eyes of the beholder to define a mindless vs. a mindful thread. Every person with a mission will run the risk of being disqualified by the uninvolved majority, however, for him, it is not mindless.
I appreaciate the underlying thought in your idea. That being said, how about we all continue as we have done so far in that everyone makes his own, personal judgment on who's threads or posts he wants to open or not. Awards are basically just a form of bureaucracy.
