    Rep rant

    Is this really a big deal to people on here? I mean, when someone here doesn't agree with someone else, they bring up negative rep and how it should come back. I could really give a rats rear end about rep whether it be positive or negative. This is the first (and only) forum I've ever been a member of that has rep period. Every other forum, if you have an issue, you say something. You don't click a button to let someone know you disagree.

    Agree or disagree, those are my personal thoughts. What are yours?

    The people that always talk about bring back negative rep tell me otherwise, though.

    I just signed up for Cyclone Fanatic a couple of months ago, so I'm not sure what you are talking about. What happens if a person gets a lot of "negative" rep?

    Case in point: MontyBurns has full rep. How many people on this site actually agree w/anything he says, though?

    Conspiracy theory: CyBobby is really his alter ego that he uses to high-five his anti-Pollard ramblings.

    Well, you can't get it anymore, but in the past, you just got either a negative score under your name, or red squares. I think the goal was to point out trolls, but people started using it if someone rubbed them the wrong way or just disagreed with them...

    Re: Rep rant

    it can be childish - when people use it the wrong way. But if used propery it can show others how credable they are. Some people do not like your views they gave you a neg rep. If you get enough neg rep then what you say would be hard to explain to some, except to the people that actually know you. Its usually the new people that throw that out against others.
