That the way the whole rep system was designed and the way its supposed to be used was with the thought in mind that the negative reps would be the ones given without reason thus less power to them. However it has become quite clear that the system was in fact abused the other way. For positive reputation. An Example : Poster A: says "Hi" 800,000 rep points for contributing nothing at all, nothing. Poster B: makes a valid point towards whatever conversation happens to be going on, -50,000 rep points Why? Because the system is being abused. Everyone wanted to blame Moopy for it at first, but no.. it was in fact everyone else who begs for reps instead of posting like you normally would and being rewarded for contributions, facts, humor.. anything but just because you ask for them. Facts are facts, people. And This isnt sour grapes.. Id love to be in red with shits like baltimore mike, but apparently im too likeable. In reality, this place needs people like jdwhatever, Moopy, and myself, who neg when it is deserved ( or when we feel like it) because if we were not here, you would all have full reps and it would not mean as much to you as some of you have already found out and stated. Almost like an addict or a binge drinker who drinks it all too quick, or drinks their liver dead by 25.. we, the neg reppers are the only true pure users of the system.. the rest of you have made a mockery of it. This is Mr. Clutch, and this has been your lesson for the day.
