Do you..customers give any points for badges?

Dear and beloved customers of Envato

I have a curiosity which I might or not find answer but there you go:

When purchasing an item, do you give any attention to the badges the seller/author has? Does it matter if he’s an Elite Author or not?

Thanks in advance for those feeling free to express their opinion.

Honestly, no. I do not look at the badges and being an elite author or not does not influence my purchases.

I do look at reviews, read the comments, check the comment response time, go over the demo with a fine tooth comb, view the external support forum if applicable. I have been burned too many times on these marketplaces so i gather as much information as I can prior to purchasing. But the badges and elite author status hold no weight in my decisions.
