    I don't know of anyone other than Bethere who believes reputation points are a measure of anything important.
    Call your state legislators and insist they approve the Article V convention of States to propose amendments.

    The reputation point system is complicated and easily manipulated. That was the point being made in this announcement. We have seen issues with it before, but it has its benefits as well, so we would rather not remove it. At the same time, since we saw it being used to taunt others, we decided some clarification was needed.

    Well, look at the point leaders then look at their post/thread counts.

    I never knew rhis stuff existed until I noticed someone (yep) browsing it.

    I mean lol, how shamefully petty is that?

    Mine is way higher than yours and you have been here twice as long with 3 times as many posts so I don't think that's how it works.

    Or look at typical posts.


    It's nice to be able to give someone a well-deserved rep, or to get one. Too bad it gets abosed.

    Good question, but one I don't know the answer to. Who cares how many reputation points one has on an anonymous forum?
