NO TO FAKE AWARDS
In my humble and unsolicited opinion, webmasters endeavor to apply and receive awards in various passions. In the same way, rated and independent award programs have different criteria in granting awards. Whether one had to meet some requirements or simply pick it as a gift, it remains to be an award. Of course awards with criteria will be more valuable than those falling in the give-me award category. To some extent, a number of friendship awards and other special awards may still be considered as legitimate awards on the context that some award programs only labeled them that way but given not only as tokens but also as awards. Hence, proper acknowledgement and taking it appropriately are the things that will make an award really authentic. Likewise, the good intent and other ethical circumstances may also contribute to the genuineness of an award. The bottom line would always be that a stolen award would always be a Fake Award. With due respect to all stakeholders, there is no fake award, the method one use in taking it makes an award fake. While I fully support other webmasters initiative against Fake Awards, I do have a more liberal point of view regarding this matter. Ultimately, let us make the seeking and sharing of awards a cordial and enjoyable opportunity among webmasters ~ Alberto Alcala.
