Re: Reversing unjustified red rep
Damn, you guys won the thread. ):
But to throw in my own two cents:
On this forum, rep is completely and utterly meaningless. Freshgrease, as intelligent and mature as I seem to have assumed you were - someone like you shouldn't be bothered by something as insignifigant as a couple of red reps, which I highly doubt put much of a dent into your current amount of reputation points anyway. What exactly is so horrible about getting a neg rep from a noob, especially when you're so bothered by it that it gets to the point where you feel as though you need to complain about it to us mods+? Reacting the way you are is probably just satisfying whatever need for amusement the noob had in continously neg repping you. You're playing into his/her hands by letting it get to you.
Rep abuse on this forum is so widespread and absolute that it can no longer be called abuse because it has become normal and expected. When there is a thread in which members beg for rep in order to get the "omglulzkewlbars" under their avatars, that should be a clue to you that rep doesn't matter. And if someone is negging you when you have asked for green rep, well, isn't that sort of your fault for posting in a reputation-based thread? There will always be those who entertain themselves by annoying others. A noob who gives a neg when someone asks for a positive is one of these types of people, much like a troll.
And since when have you been susceptible to trolling, of all people?
Get it together, Freshgrease, you're failing hard. :/
