    I wanted to make the results open but...
    I think I'll get more honest answers this way.

    Please answer honestly.

    I can't---It's still not clear to me what is considered "abuse".

    I thought I was using it properly only to be told I wasn't.

    Given rep out of spite.
    Given rep just because.
    Given "back atcha" yep.
    Given rep to reflect anything other than it's original intent.

    According to a few on the other thread, not all of us.
    I admit, I'm guilty. Trying to prove a point that the rep system
    doesn't reflect what it's meant to.

    I agree...some in here try to convince all of us of their perfection...I am flawed and will admit it!

    The rep system reflects the individual users. It only works if we police ourselves; and take PERSONAL responsibility for it's use. It's a judgement call:

    "Somebody dinged my rep, I'll ding them right back!"

    "Someobdy gave me rep, I'll give them rep right back!"

    Use the honor system when using the Rep or PM features. Use 'good judgement' when repping.

    If those policies are enforced by we, the users, the rep system won't be a problem.

    As I've posted via Sticky...

    "good judgement" is highly subjective, D. One's judgement varies as widley as opinions on this board. One might feel perfectly justified in what they are doing, yet when interpreted by a moderator it might be interpretted differently. I know you find it appalling that everyone doesn't have the same sense of right or wrong as you do but it's just the way it is.

    I can understand why someone might resent a public insult and feel the need to respond to it but whiners who are hurt because someone said something to them privately need to be aware that they are responsible for what they post. They take a chance that someone might negatively rep them every time they post. If someone knows that they will be hurt by criticism or negative rep they should be responsible for that truth about themselves. Not whine when it happens.

    I have more faith in ppl to know right from wrong.

    here's a tip - Being justified in one's actions doesn't mean the action is always the 'rigth thing to do'.
