    Let's start with a simple question: do you think people like being negged?

    I wasn't here, but that certainly sounds very plausible. I can imagine that this may have happened to some on the left as well.

    You mean like when I said I think we should have basic government with only basic services like police and military that are not practical without government and you called me ignorant, a sycophant and a Statist? Yes, that was a response showing me the great civility in debate you desire ... [/sarcasm]

    I'd start with yourself ...

    The neg rep system leads to neg rep wars. Comments drop and attacks increase. At least with a comment you can defend or use your ignore option and move on.

    The value of a board is based on membership size and active rate of members. It bank loan/sale value is based on those numbers.

    So whatever destroys interaction good or bad and depletes members numbers is BAD for the bottom line. And when a system or group harms the bottom line it needs to go.

    I will give you that you personally didn't use negative rep a lot. But wow, you think the left preferred not to use negative rep and the right did? The reason for that, Jake, is the left agreed with you. Think about that ...

    You are, actually, describing what the hard line crazy right did, and when it was stopped, they cried at Jabber.

    Another bold assertion.

    Tell me why would a neg rep on an anonymous message board mean anything to anyone?

    You do realize that the point system on a message board is absolutely meaningless don't you?

    Of course to admit that means you can't claim to "win" the internet anymore and that seems to be all many people here have
