Yeah, thanks.Dodgy

I think your previous rep was a +2, given when you had super powers.

RE: Stupid rep...
Someone shouldn't be reped based on a single post, no matter how good it is.

RE: Stupid rep...
Someone went a step too far when using the rep posts option to abuse the rep giving limits. Someone from this very thread if I remember correctly.

That's why it got removed.

Best and worst of Ferdinand .....
Best
Ferdinand: We don't really say 'theist' in Alabama. Here, you're either a Christian, or you're from Afghanistan and we fucking hate you.
Worst
Ferdinand: Everyone from British is so, like, fucking retarded.

That was kind of the thinking when post-rep was ended.

I think Deep said it was just too open to abuse. There was no great outcry at the time.

In my eyes it defeated the purpose of the rep system. Whats the point when one user can give someone 3,000,000,000 gajilion rep points arbitrarily?

With the current implementation, high rep actually means lots of users had to give positive rep. It's more representative of community opinion.

It was comical, though.

I have to slow down when I read...

I thought this said "Someone shouldn't be raped based on a single post, no matter how good it is."
