    kaz, au contraire, I used it like a demon with people like liability, koshergrl, reb, the odd one, pole rider, and some others on the hard right. IOW, I gave what I got, and then some.

    I do think the Board is much better without neg rep.

    But that is you saying this, skull. You have never understood the link between theory and practice. Your link bone is generally broken. Yes, kaz, that is a bold assertion.

    I guess if you have self esteem issues it would. I didn't care either way, of course I take nothing or anyone seriously on this board, you are only here for my entertainment.

    There was a conservative wolf pack also

    New members were attacked for benign comments of the opposite political spectrum. If they tried to neg back, they were mocked and more (higher value) neg was dropped on them

    Mods responded with an "opt out" feature which enraged the conservative wolf pack

    I post plenty of links.

    I just don't suck my thumb and cry when some anonymous internet poster neg reps me just like I don't pat myself on the back if some anonymous internet poster likes what I post

    Telling you and other conservatives that you're wrong is not an "insult," you're simply in fact wrong.

    No I am not, there are MANY complaints there about as I called them "Clown Trash". The system was abused by MANY for many different reasons but mostly by clown trash.

    It hurt the site and you may not remember me but I was here in 2011. For five whole comments. CK had two problems to face with this board right off the bat. 1, The platform was EL SUCKO and could barely work on a good day. 2, And when he got a working platform he had a rep war going on.

    That rep war was outright ignorance of those members who were posting on HIS dime destroying HIS site. And HE let them off lucky. I myself would have banned them IN thread IN public. It would have been a SLAUGHTER.

    CK was very, very benevolent in that case, far more then I would have been.

    I remember the neg button and the rating stuff, however I didn't real all the games that the two sides played with it. Ratings never mattered to me. If I need approval on a message board, I have bigger issues then a rating.

    Yes, he was very kind to the hard right. He merely took away the neg rep. Anyone can go to Jabber and see who is complaining, DF.
