Is making up something about someone allowed in giving negative reps? YES or NO

If yes, can anyone on the forum give negative reps simply because they don't like someone?

My thoughts. Take the reps as a representation of the temperaments of those voting.

It's easy to preach to the the choir. See who dislike you via reps history, and try to change your tactics to "win them over". The world (and forum) isn't the way it is as you like it to be because people don't think like you. Try to "convert" as many as you can. And you can use your reps history as an indicator of your success or failure.

If what I said doesn't concern you. then reps have no real use, so no need to worry about it if you have no control over it (other than changing the person that you want to represent online).
And also if the people reping have no worth in your eyes (their opinions don't matter), again, no real issue there.

Yup. Girly got no idea how to help you since I find you funny as fuck. But I also find TrainWreck funny as fuck at -30 rep so the community don't share Girly's sense of humor. ... A timeout from posting new threads and forcing you to respond to existing threads and the community might realize that you are funny as fuck. ... Or not.

As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.

RE: [split] I&I asks about rep / Helping I&I
Once again, I'm late to the party. And, I did not bother to read the previous 14 1/2 pages but I did read through like the first 7 or 8 and I think I've got the general gist of the discussion. So, my small contribution to this thread is this: if everyone else is able to get along with everyone but you, and everyone has the problem with you, then the problem isn't everyone else, it's you.

As for your various questions about why people don't like you, all I can say is perhaps if you were a little less deliberately obtuse you wouldn't get slammed all the time. I have a pretty good idea that you know exactly what sets people off because it's pretty much the same behavior every single time. If you can't figure out how to interact with people, you need to seek help from professionals, not an internet message board.

Funny as in 'ha ha' or funny as in 'peculiar'?

RE: [split] I&I asks about rep / Helping I&I
I disagree with you BnW. Sometimes the majority is absolutely wrong.

Not that I think this is the case here, but more importantly it doesn't matter.

If the people who run the forum want a certain behaviour to stop, then that's all there is to it. It doesn't matter if it wasn't in the rules, or if people disagree. If someone says something like "Don't continuously post the same topic, with the same points over and over again" and you don't feel like listening because you don't agree, it really doesn't matter.

If they said it then that's all there is to it. You don't like it to bad so sad. Go somewhere else. If you want to stay then do what you are told. Stop being a little whiny baby, or I'll send you to your room without supper.

Indeed this (and all forums) are a dictatorship not a democracy. We hope it is a benevolent dictatorship and on the whole the intention is to avoid capricious and unfair judgments but in the end it comes down to what the Admins supermods and mods allow so there is always a bit of the subjective to it.


On the whole the rep system works as intended if you have a negative overall rep you have done something to earn it. As to the whole "Poor me standing up against the majority" act I&I likes to pull I can name several examples of people that actually do have an opposite opinion to the majority of the forum and yet have net positive reps, Kingschoosen and Luminon being the two prime examples.

It's the purview of only the most sanctimonious shitgrinning asshole to carry on as though holding a minority viewpoint were somehow virtuous in and of itself.

It's quite possible to disagree and remain cordial. It's quite possible to disagree fundamentally and emphatically and remain cordial. So there's that.
