Which do you think shows more insecurity. Whining on the board about neg rep. Thanking someone on the board for pos rep. I'm going with the latter. Whining about neg rep takes a little bit of nerve as the whiner knows everyone is going to let him or her have it. Thanking someone for pos rep on a regular basis, or just acknowledging receiving it, smacks of a deep insecurity and the wish to appear cool. What say you?
