    Posters can be effective jackasses without neg reps.

    Loserterianism is stupid and deserves to be attacked and they only deserve jackasses attacking your anti-government ass.

    That negates the whole entertainment value of the neg.

    The rep. wars were fun and I do recall when I started posting on the USMB it took me at least 6 months just to get back to zero.

    The problem with the rep system was that rep. groups developed (groups that reped each other daily) and bullied other members with an opposing point of view. Many great members and potential great members simply moved on from the unfairness. Also, It was just too much work for the mods. is my I guess.

    Perhaps a self-flagellation button could be offered for those who miss receiving negative accolades.

    Those neg reps are a horrible spiteful ganging up game to play. There are usually more of 'them' than of 'us'. And the most interesting posters tend to move on.
