Not with the right attire. You really need a really full skirt on a floor length dress or a cape that you can swoosh around as you flounce to your exit. You have to have style for it to work.

Like Earmuffs. None here can attempt to flounce better.

Very true. Even without the Scarlet O'Hara dress. Tongue

He needs to wear that more often.

But let's be honest....I rock the resting bitch face.

That might be the rationalization behind not allowing neg-repped users from handing out rep, but the actual effect is a forum where everyone has free speech but some have more free speech than others.....which works out okay if you are a pig.

As I pointed out above to another member, much of it is not what you say, but how you say it.

When I was a kid, Pa Thump would sometimes tell me, "Son, tact is the ability to tell someone to 'go to Hell' and have them looking forward to the trip."

I'm consonant with some of the major views here, dissonant with the others, and somehow my rep (for what it's worth) is in the green. That indicates to me that while there are folks who disagree with me, and sometimes it's gotten a little ugly, they've rarely felt their intelligence or patience so abused that they resorted to that.

My experience, which may or may not be useful to you, is that the backspace key is useful, as is a little wait before replying to a post which really bugs me. It lets the heat of the moment cool off, and gives me a little time to phrase my thoughts in such a manner that steers the interchange away from invective. It doesn't always work. Some folks are bound to take offense no matter what; sometimes (again, as shown above) there's no really polite way to frame my opinion.

But I try my best, and I think that's the key.

You may well think otherwise.

I'm a fucking asshole. I just dress it up nicely, give entertainment and/or substance and not ennui, and ... it works for me.

How so, or is that just an opinion? From this thread and its parent, it would seem there is 100% free speech on this forum.

How can this be a 100% free speech forum when a minority group, the negged repped, are banned from using one of its speech features(the rep system)?

Again, I don't have a problem with the rules. Its a private forum and the owners/operators have no obligation whatsoever to cater to my speech needs. My beef is when people make the claim this is a free speech forum. Lets at least be honest and recognize that it isn't. Its free speech for some, restricted for others.

Rep system isn't really a speech system, it's really just a way to tell someone you like them or hate them, posts and private messages are the real speech systems.

What you call a rampage, I call catching up. Those few people I negged repped when I had that short opportunity, I would have negged repped over time had I had that opportunity. What difference does it make that I did it in a short burst? Everyone that I negged repped, deserved a negative rep from me because they treated me poorly or argued poorly in my opinion.

Further, you think it is wrong for Bob to neg rep Alice just because Alice negged repped Bob. Do you also think the opposite is wrong? If Bob positive reps Alice is it wrong for Alice to positive rep Bob to return the favor? You and I know both know that goes on.

So your saying telling someone you like or hate them isn't speech? Come on.
