Oh me. Oh my.

Whoever said that I like to argue for the sake of argument is right. I do like to argue especially when I am winning the argument. Argument is exercise for the brain. You might think it an absurd endeavor but that is only because your brain is lazy. I'll give you credit though....it certainly a more industrious position than claiming I am whining.

I sincerely doubt anyone would care if they lost a point to someone the entire forum hates. The rep display on the posts themselves don't show if you've been neg repped, just the total number, so anyone who just glances at it isn't even going to notice. And anyone who actually clicks in will see the source the rep came from.

Is it supposed to protect against the idea that the negative rep people might declare war and go around lowering people's reps? Is it for new people who don't know that everyone considers everything Heywood says to be worthless?

There is no real harm in allowing negged repped people to rep others. Even if negged repped people went on the dreaded neg repped rampages people here are so fearful of. The forum isn't going to disband. It isn't going to skip a beat.

You mistake discussion for argument.

Boring. You can do better trolling than this, Heywood. I have faith in you.

Being disruptive to the spirit of the forum will get you banned. As per Seth. We're just saving you from yourself.

Why is this thread being so side-tracked? Stop giving me the impression that someone is still talking about the OP.

Please, someone split the threads.

Might as well keep all the crap together in one thread. It has no content to justify spending time on splitting it.
