Thumbs down Stars for rating threads - One Gold star for "Terrible" makes sense... how?

We have a spammer in one of the forums that isn't being taken care of, and I went to rate the latest spammed thread as terrible.

Trying to rate a thread as good or bad only assigns it one through five stars.

What does that do? It puts a gold star in the line of the listed thread in the forum as if there was something special about that thread - which completely counters forum members' attempts to warn other forum members to avoid the post.

But I thought you meant that if you click on the 1 Star it shows up at 5 Stars? My 1 Star click just displays 1 Star

No, that's not what I meant. Maybe I wrote it poorly?

Here in the USA, a "Gold Star" is known as a reward from back in the days when, in grade school, the teacher would place a gold star on tests or assignments that were done to nearly a 100% achievement level.

What I'm saying is - the use of even only a single gold star to imply something is not worth reading makes no sense.

And I'm fine with that, 'cause even one Gold Star means Awesomeness to everyone in the world except to, apparently, the Vulcan Forum page designer, lol.

I remember those star sticker ratings the teacher put beside student names, I always thought it was unfair because all the most popular students got most of the stars, I was like, I hate this star system, cause all the other kids can now see how unpopular I am, its like giving the other kids reason to point the finger at me and snicker

That's crazy.

In the schools I've attended it was based on getting an A or A+ on a quiz or something like that.
