    Reputation is not as important to me as how many viewers are reading the threads I am posting in. I am constantly amazed that topics I find dull do extremely well. And sometimes a topic that I think are important dies after a couple of posts. I like the fact that I am learning the tastes of the USMB membership.

    I consider it a compliment when someone gives me rep. It makes me feel good. When I get negative rep, it is usually from some poster I have slammed. I am not sure that anyone should have the right to take away someone elses reputation. Neg me, I neg back, it is that simple. Yes, it is childish. Also, I don't think it is that important.

    One thing I do watch is my contacts and friends. I think this is more of an indicator of how one is perceived by USMB members. If I have angered someone on my friends list, I need to give that some thought. But, I think I am probably a minority opinion on the friends thing.

    It takes ego strength to deal with a neg rep ?

    I've already been given advice on how to deal with the rep system. If someone negs you, neg them back and after a while they will stop.

    If that's how the system works, what is it good for? it's a tit for tat hair pulling session that no one wins. The weak hand at the table is the noob who might only have 1000 points going up against someone who has 25k. They learn REAL QUICK to just shut up and move along because a few long term bullies who have racked up enough points can drive them into the red.

    And they let the poor sap know it every chance they get.

    Here's a question, why aren't rep histories public? I'm guessing it's because the site believes that is private member/site info that is nobodies business. If that's the case why are people allowed to come onto threads and cackle "negged you asshole, nyah, nyah, nyah!". Isn't that revealing personal site info of a member?

    You opted out of the rep system because you couldn't handle it. That's how you dealt with it.

    I agree with all reps being made public. Those are hilarious.

    Never do that...rep is zero in reality, always say what you believe, no matter what.
