Tense, noted.

Big Grin

Oh fuck off. Tongue

I was going to write about passed members that I respected...

Then as I thought about it, there's more than a few current members I do respect.

You used to be one of them. Laugh out load

Literally the only Hug I've ever given anyone ever (online)... Blush

RE: Consensus
The main problem with consensus systems is that they are subject to Byzantine failures. Fortunately, as long as the number of members is at least 3x the number of trolls, solutions are available. [ref]

RE: Consensus
Just a friendly forum announcement.

But if you want a Negative Rep Point, all you need to do is ask.

In fact, ask me. I'll just be over here, handing them out. Trust me, I will not run out.
