RE: Ending neg reps.
While I readily forgave girlie...I'm actually a little hurt that Muffs gave me a neg rep...

Yes...I do see the irony...and I don't care. Undecided

Negative reps has served a slightly useful purpose by creating a sort of "red flag" for spotting trolls. However, I've also, at times, seen a good, solid argument pretty much ignored because the poster is automatically seen as not-so-credible.

For the most part though, neg rep has just caused problems. Most of it amounts to a bunch of whining, though there is still a healthy portion of serious losses due to the system. Plus, I don't know about you all, but I sure. Old do with a little less whining sometimes.

I say, get rid of negative rep. Maintain the ability to delete rep you've given. Then dole out more rep credits and encourage people to use it more effectively, as in, giving an appropriate amount of rep. Then we can still look at rep as an indicator of ones credibility by observing their rep in comparison to their number of posts. At the same time, we can encourage a little bit of if-you-don't-have-anything-nice-to-say type behavior.

Savvy?

It's so nice to see you posting. Please come and join my forum. I will never say that to anyone else--you can be sure. I don't even care if you don't post. I'll even make you an honorary senior global mod. And you don't have to do any mod duties at all. You are special.

I think the rep system is ridiculous. I think only me and Blowme are negative rep, and we are the theists. So, where's the credibility? I have -21. I'm proud of it. I'm a theist in an atheist forum with a bunch of leftovers from Raving Atheist. The guy who started "veridicanism.com" is in here, for Christ's sake. My neg rep is really a positive rep. Seriously: If I had positive rep, I'd start making terrorist threats if I had to.

I keeel you all! I keeel you all!

I know, KC is supposed to be a theist, but let's face it, he doesn't really act like one, does he? So, of course, he has all these positive rep points. QED!

It's stupid. Put out there by stupid mods. I'm doing away with it entirely on my forum. And leave it to you to assume we are children. Again--Stupid is as stupid deeuhs.

We never leave cliquey little high school do we?

Granted. That is the fly in my argument's ointment. I actually see my neg rep as a positive thing. I'm not actually against gays, but I'm thinking of starting to post stuff like that just to get some more neg reps. There's a lot of gays in here.

It's interesting you say your willing to be disingenuous about anything -- even in jest, yet just earlier you claim KC isn't a real Christian. How ironic.

I like the rep system both positive and negative.

Maybe I will introduce it to my Chinese forums one day, which I regularly visit.

Want something? Then do something.

RE: Ending neg reps.
I'm breaking my own protocol and rule, and I'm actually going to stop actively ignoring you, Ed. Just this once... after that, I'll most of the time passover or scroll past your posts.

Also, don't bother to respond... unlike others, I'm not going to be drawn in by your empty drivel. After this I'll leave you to your continued downward spiral of irrelevance and continued masturbation of your ego.

You say I don't act like a theist? Deductive reasoning says you mean because I associate and interact with atheists in a friendly manner. And, this is reflected by my positive rep.

If treating others with respect isn't acting like a theist, then I guess I'm not a theist. If reflecting a TRUE Christ-like nature to ALL people regardless of who they are isn't acting like a theist, then I guess I'm not a theist.

So, Ed... then question is begged, "How should a theist act?"

I use deductive reasoning again and assume the answer is, "Like Edward J Gordon."

But see... here in lies the problem... if acting like a theist means acting like you, I want to be anything but a theist. In fact, Ed, whatever god you serve I don't want anything to do him. If your god is any reflection of you, I would rather have my fingernails ripped off than serve the vile creature that you serve and you claim to embody you.

You blaspheme Christ and His teachings, with your cult of Veridicanism while at the same time spitting in the face of true Christianity by claiming your cult is "of Christ".

Truth be told, Ed, you are a theist... but you are atheistic towards Christ. You only believe and serve one god - Edward J Gordon - and, if that's what it means to be a theist, then consider me an atheist with a capital "A".
