    you gotta "spread it around".

    It's my rep, I should be able to do what I want with it. I don't think I should have to rep a doz people just so I can go back and give birthday rep to someone for their birthday.

    Rep should be like a fine wine, you use it sparingly, and share it only with your friends and family.

    I see it as a pat on the back for a good post, even if it opposes what you might think is right. Nothing wrong with repping somebody for making you smile or coming up with an interesting pov.

    I wouldn't recommend passing reps around like it was water, but there's nothing wrong with giving out some 'attaboys' either. Go ahead - make somebody's day.

    I have no problems with sharing my fine wine with someone who's made a good post. What I hate is having to spread it around just so I can go back and give someone Birthday rep.

    Heck, I don't even know what it is, how to find it, how to do it or why I should care. Hell, the only reason I clicked into this thread was because I saw the rep in the title and thought I might get a good fight out of someone dissin' republicans. I'm just here having fun. ;~)
