    I really want to know. Who decides which posters have sucked up enough to earn positive points? Who decides which posters are reprehensible enough to merit negative points?

    Pay no attention--they are a code that you are to ignore.

    Methinks it's mostly board unanimous that you suck. Everyone is free to give points, and take them away as they see fit.

    That's what I thought. :lame2:
    I figured that 10,000 rep points and $10 would get you a latte and a lemon square at Starbucks.

    click on user cp at the top of the page and you can see who gave you negative rep points, plus any nasty comments they made about you as well.

    I never give liberals positve rep points.

    I was about to mention the fact that negative points are generally given not (as they should be) for vulgar language, flaming, and incoherence, but rather for simply having a different opinion. On this message board, liberals frequently get negative rep points for voicing liberal opinions.

    Moreover, liberals are banned far more quickly than others. I've seen people banned for far less than what the more vulgar, invective posters (PaleRider, OCA et al) offer on a daily basis. Say what you will about disparate amount of liberals and conservatives, but there is definitely a significantly longer rope for people who toe the GOP party line.

    Gaffer appears to be a prime example; ideologically opposed to positively repping a liberal for a coherent, salient point. Slap-happily being self-congratulatory and sycophantic in positively repping conservatives. As far as I can tell from the rules and the good moderators, this is not at all in the nature of the USMB.

    You think it sucks because you are classified as a wothless troll right now, don't worry it'll get better for you, pretty soon you'll be classified as sucking off goats.

    If you had a good rating you'd think its grand.

    Anyway its just something added to the board to have fun with, other than Gabriella nobody really sems to take it too seriously.
