That is certainly a potato. But is that person willing to handle poo the same way? Blink

I just want to say that everyone who uses rep to annoy people, punish people or be vindictive belongs in Kindergarden.

I am starting to think we need to remove rep all together. People are not mature enough to handle it.

Facepalm

Punish all for the behavior of a few? May need to think on that a little more.

See here they are the bruises some were self-inflicted and some showed up along the way. - JF

I don't see that as punishment? Its not an important part of the forum, and it causes more trouble than it's worth, imo.

This isn't little league, everyone doesn't get a trophy. If people can't handle their reps, they can stop looking at them, and everyone else's while they are at it.

edit - Let's count how many people are making rep an issue on the board...

One....

ummm...

Consider

ummmm....

I come up with one.

Who other than Woofs(who should have been permabanned for sockpuppeting) has a problem with the rep system?

I come up with two, but it doesn't matter much to me one way or another. It just started grinding on my nerves. A walk with my dogs fixes that.

Also, I may have been celebrating my new freedoms a bit too much. Smokin

RE: Admin Question?
For what it's worth I think numerical rating systems, of any kind, on boards are inherently bad. Although they shouldn't, people will have the desire to grow that arbitrary number; the easiest way to do this is to change what they say. That, and I think it takes away from the most basic function of a discussion board: discussion. Why argue when you can just neg someone into the red, or +1 their detractor? An argument either stands or falls on its own; whether or not it's the more popular position - or whether the one making it is popular - perhaps shouldn't be known at all.
