This only appears in the classifieds areaa. But if you look you'll see a green $ and a red $. Green is a good transaction, Red is a bad one. Please rate as you see it and don't just overdo it. Had a kid not like my posts on the ad he had, and started hitting the Red $ for a bad transaction. Well, since I never dealt with him for an item, I had to go through and delete all the ratings (since it affected my status and I didn't even buy from him). So only use it if you're the buyer or seller on the particular item.
