I have to agree with BW... I've gotten negative rep for saying a canadian accent... lol... I was like w/e cuz it was probably an insulted canadian... You also have to figure the person that gave u negative rep. for no reason is most likely doing it to everyone, so it evens out.

Remember, the admins have much more sway over a user's rep than ordinary users do so be fair
So what does that prove? I should just bitch and moan when I get bad rep for no reason?

If you bothered to read my post BlackWolf, as you apprently didn't, you would know that I didn't care about the 3 points so much as I did about the lack of comments and for the posts they were givin. Did I even ask for it to be reversed and the 3 points restored? No I didn't. Clearly your making more of a big deal out of thise tyring to mock me then I am. I didn't ask for the points to be reversed, nor would I expect that, all I want to know is if it was the same person all 3 times. Nor do I expect to be told who that person or persons are. The point of why I am making a big deal out of this though is because there is obviously one or more people on these forums who just likes to give out bad rep to be a jackass, or to piss everyone off by giving it for stupid things. What happens when this person or persons get alot more posts? They will be able to negativly effect good members reps very quickly. Thus making good members look like the spammers and trouble makers of the forums. Considering not many people use the rep feature to begin with, so the "negative rep is only at half strength" point doesn't work. While the person(s) gradually effect people more and more over time but only at half as many positive points, not enough people use the positive points to "offset" the effect if you will, which in turns brings reps down for good posts/questions. THAT was my point, not to make a big deal out of the 3 points taken away from me.

Well I don't expect you to work yourself to death trying to do this. I mean I think most people here would like it to be done, but if its going to take a ton of time and be a ton or work, then don't bother. We don't want you to take alot of time out of your life just to cater to us and everything we want. I'm just kind of pissed off that someone, or more then one person, gave me a bad rep for a stupid reason and then to make it worse didn't even tell me why they did. I think bad rep should only be given to someone if they making a spamming post, or a falmming post. Basically anything that would "break the rules" and just generally make you seem to be an asshole. Not for asking questions or not laughing at something, or liking one football team over another like what happened to both Alias and I. That I believe is abusing the system since how the hell can you honestly give someone a bad rep for liking their hometeam football team more then another team? I think anyone who would do that is just here to cause trouble and basically be a jerk by giving stupid bad reps.

Exactly what I was saying. I made a comment in the User Rep thread. Back and forth all different numbers as to how to get rep etc, and I had made a comment "see, you do need math, study it" or something like that. That got bad rep. For what? That guy too stupid to add and subtract, so I gotta get bad rep for it?And again, like I stated, I'm not asking anything to be reverese, but try to make it so it's a legitimate reason, not cause "i don't understand your humor."

If it makes you feel any better, you can only affect negative rep at HALF strength.So all the idiots that only affect 1 point actually affect 0 if they give a negative.

Not really...cause to me, it's not the "rep points" I have... it's just the fact, that people are giving bad rep for, what I can tell, no reason.plus, should someone get a bad rep post simply because they disagree?
