    I believe this is for the actual "Star-ing" of a conversation, similar to Gmail's feature. It allows you to save important conversations, for easy access later.

    I think, in your third line, "star" is a verb.
    "Starred" is what the conversation is called after you star it.
    and, I don't know why you would star a conversation. I guess it's like marking an email, "urgent" or something.

    @Sinus23 : I was wondering why your cougar was wearing self powered ear muffs until I noticed you are in Iceland. Good choice!

    We get the occasional request for battery operated socks or gloves, and the energy budget is always too high for the batteries. Your idea looks like an excellent way to get around that problem. :)

    .... but perhaps the moggy on the top could do with the battery-powered ear muffs ;).
    Me? I'm ok; I breathe fire (at least I do over at ETO).

    I think we all get so used to reading garbled spelling, strange abbreviations, and foreign words on the internet that we mentally blank out an extra letter here or there, like TV commercials or the voice of the wife. It's the visual form of selective hearing.
