    I wanted to get some feedback here. vBulletin has released a beta version, 3.6, of their software including some cool new features. I won't install until it comes out of beta but here's some new included features. (I'm including those I like here, if interested, visit the following link for all new features. There are TONS but most are backend administration junk)

    Makes one wonder if the stated goals of USMB...

    http://www.usmessageboard.com/

    ...can withstand such a system.

    I've already seen that anything that isn't lock-step with the Republican Party earns one a neg rep... while antisemitics (I don't think I have to name a name) have hundreds of positive rep...

    I'm not sure I see where the 2 are related. Freedom of speech and freedom to express your views won't be limited in any way, unless of course you break the written rules. I'm sure you can see the difference between expressing your political view and breaking rules that have nothing to do with your views and/or expressions. The rules are there to ensure chaos doesn't ruin the threads or forums, not to limit ones views or opinion.

    You'd be pretty hard pressed to find a single instance where I have ever repped someone for a "republican" view. You'll be just as hard pressed to find an instance where I neg repped someone for a dem/lib point of view. I have repped before for intelligent, well thought out posts and reserve my negative reps for those that are inciting rather than debating. Of course others use it more or less as a game, but then again the rep system has no official bearing on anything on the board, it's there for 'amusement' only.

    Please don't try to make more out of things then there are, or try to insinuate things about the board owner based on decisions that are thought to make the board a better place.
