    with a limit on negs you only encourage trolls and bad posters....or hateful posters...

    i still say mods should simply step up and do their job....then you would not need these sweeping reforms...

    You right wingers are throwing an even bigger pissy fit over this than when you got your asses handed to you with the ACA ruling. Get a grip and grow up.

    If we grew up, your avatar would be in the toilet where it belongs.

    :lol:

    Not a right winger.

    But I agree, many Conservatives are throwing a hissy fit over this one.

    Because - on USMB - the conservatives tend to be more intelligent. Rarely see one whining about negs... big on that whole free speech concept.... liberals, mehhhh, not so much. Control freaks.

    My thoughts, I think 20 rep over 24 hours is too many...but 5 is too low. Something around 12 would be a good idea, along with 10 negs, which I would also change, to no more than 1 every 24 hours.

    It was almost interesting to see people put a little more thought into reps when they thought they only had 5 each. The point is there's too much rep if people are able to play abusive games with it, whatever the case may be.

    As far as "sorry posters" go, think about it bones. Which posters do you see with red splats? The shittiest posters this board has to offer, like Yidnar and Ariux.

    If a poster is that bad, a near daily amount of negs from a wider group of people will keep their count low...and if they're only seen as bad to 4 or 5 posters with elite rep counts, they'll be safe from red splats from a small group hitting them a couple times a day, which is as it should be when you consider the size of the forum.

    :rolleyes:

    More Conservatives on the board equates to a better chance of having more intelligent ones.
