How do you feel about temporary accolades?
Some aren't aware that some accolades (our proudly-earned profile badges) are temporary and may be removed. See the link below for the list. I can understand the logic to an extent, but on the other hand, Hubbers can and do feel cheated when their accolades are removed.
In my case, it's the red commenting accolade that most irks me, as it seems to focus on how often you insert comments instead of the percentage of those you reply to and the quality of your insights. We shouldn't let our accolades define us, but Hubbers never like these cases. Thoughts?
I didn't even realize that some accolades were temporary. I don't like that they can be removed either. I understand how that would irk you especially with the points you made about not focusing on the percentage you reply on and the quality of your comments. Seems to me, all accolades should be permanent. That makes more sense to me.

I know this is going to be a big no, but honestly, I would be motivated to write more hubs and clean up old ones if I got paid 80% instead of 60%. Even 70% would motivate me more. Anyone else feel the same?
