"Your post annoyed me! Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!"

It seems like that is the subtext of every neg rep I've received.

I bet when you neg rep, an overwhelming sense of power rushes through your entire body and actually numbs you for a second, followed by a euphoric sensation of pins and needles.

It's been mentioned before.

Neg repping is like screaming at someone...when you can't talk from strength.
I know. This topic comes up every 10 days or so. I just thought I had a new take on it.

But payback could be construed as whining too.

Some poster got mad at me for something, and made a big deal about giving me some negative rep in the thread. I was laughing so hard, it was like a bully on the school yard taking his marbles and going home because he lost!

Actually, I don't know what a positive rep is, let alone a negative one. Can someone tell me?

I've never been neg rep'd although I no doubt have deserved it. And doing it is the last thing that crosses my mind to do. I have sent politely informative PMs, which usually get like responses.

The whole business of repping confuzzles me. Why is it, exactly, I'm meant to give a fuck what number of rep points I have?

Is there a free iPad at stake?
