But it does cause an annoyance.  I would be intensely annoyed - quite apart from the stupidity of the ranks themselves which I've posted below.  How insulting would it be, for example, if there happened to be female member called "Proof" who is suddenly informed by email that they're "in the pudding"?

 

Do something useful to rejig this nonsense rather than give a platitude and carry on.

 

And how can the ordinary user know that "Font of all knowledge" s higher that "Human answer bank".

 

I'm exasperated that either an individual fool thought this up or worse still a committee of fools who thought that an email announcing a lot of nonsense would be well received.

Re: samsung

The OP's issue is not with the status descriptions. The issue is with the automated email that goes out to inform them of the change in status.

 

Maybe the emails should just be abandoned - they don't help, may be considered spam, and actively irritate some recipients.

 

Especially if their problem is with network speed...

Re: samsung

I have an opinion too. The emails announce a meaningless rank and that is annoying.
