    Thumbs down To all you that leave negative rep

    Don't hide behind the system, have the guts to put your screen name behind your comments when you leave any kind of rep. I do because if you agree or disagree with me I want you to IM me and debate with me your opinion. I think it's coward of someone to leave negative rep with a vague anonymous comment. It's the 1 thing I'd like to see change about the site is that it shows who left the negative rep so people aren't so loosely dishing it out.

    Re: To all you that leave negative rep

    All rep shows who posted it. Under user cp, you can who has left rep. If it is negative, they must leave a reason.

    I used to be on the fence about reputation, but now I think it should be removed entirely. It's just another status symbol.

    It may tell you who since you are a moderator but for the average Joe it just tells which post, what date, and a comment.

    Re: To all you that leave negative rep

    Trav I see why you would want it that way and in a mature world I would agree. But there are some posters that would go insane and badger tha others if they knew who gave them the neg rep. Just my opinion, I have given negative rep w/o my name but only to the unreasonable who are not listening to the other side of the arguement/debate. I would hate for them to have my name while they are still heated about their opinion.

    You are one of the examples why the rep thing has flaws. New people that come here and post well-thought opinions get "flamed" sometimes because it's no the popular opinion. Granted I haven't read your posts yet but I know there are many like you in the same boat I'm sure.

    Re: To all you that leave negative rep

    I agree that the reputation isn't a great feature. It discourages debate.

    Read his posts and you will know why his rep level is where it's at.

    Good point. I see both sides to it. I just get irked because while I know that sometimes I may have opinions that people don't agree with I get some nasty comments on them and they "hide" behind the system basically so I don't even get a chance to debate/defend my post.

    Re: To all you that leave negative rep

    And I guess there is a rule that we can not talk about the number of rep points but all of this debate is allowed. Is this posted somewhere? Or is it a moderator with a little too much power?
