    This Is News??

    I thought this happened a couple of times a year at most every school in America. Slow news day, I guess?

    If I accidently gave u negative rep on that, I'm sorry, I'm out of it today. It was supposed to be positive.

    It was negative, and now my night is ruined. The beat down earlier was not as bad as this.

    It couldn't be that bad, my rep is in the red.

    So I don't think it would have done anything actually if you had all positive.

    If it did, sorry.

    Yes, I know your feeling. I get beat down all the time here.

    A rep from someone with low rep doesn't have any effect. So don't sweat it, but you can repay later with pos if it makes everyone feel better.

    You repped me, too, and I'm not sure if it was pos or neg, as yours shows up as a blue icon, representing no rep effect. It is helpful to leave a comment, too.

    Your rep was given in another thread I think, and I'm sure it was positive.

    You're right...another thread. It's interesting when low rep people rep, because it shows up as a blue icon, meaning no effect on your rep took place. However, you can't then tell if you were trying to rep neg or pos. That's where a comment comes in handy.

    It's the thought that counts, though...Thanks.

    Yeah I always thought that just negative rep didn't show up so I guess I'll leave comments now until I get back into the positive.

    Incredible what one opinion can do to your rep, everyone tears it to shreds.
