    Reputation Point System

    Notice & Warning: The Reputation point system is not an accurate reflection of thread standing due to apparent abuse. Continued touting of meaningless reputation standings may result in the moderators recommending its removal or resetting.

    I have never given it much thought. It is not why I enjoy posting here.
    Call your state legislators and insist they approve the Article V convention of States to propose amendments.

    Do you, of all people, want it removed?

    Was I touting it, have I ever touted it? Evidently, it offends you, but I really couldn't care less. I will say that anyone that feels offended at someone else's "reputation" really should probably find other methods to spend their time. It's...sorta snowflake'y.

    That wasn't the point. Bethere was using it as a measure of his board-level awesomeness. Maybe it is. Maybe it isn't. Cut and Run Bethere was using it as a shield against his history of leaving the scene when the going gets tough.

    Then that is something that should be taken up with that particular member. I don't see how anyone can tout a "Rep" on an online anonymous forum, but that doesn't mean to say that those that are jealous should social engineer the rules to raise the self esteem of snowflakes.

    Why do you make things up now? I'm not offended in the least.

    Your passive-aggressive retort "Do you, of all people, want it removed" was the tic that showed your hand.
    “Conscientiously believing that the proper condition of the negro is slavery, or a complete subjection to the white man, and entertaining the belief that the day is not distant when the old Union will be restored with slavery nationally declared to be the proper condition of all of African descent, and in view of the future harmony and progress of all the States of America, I have been induced to issue this address, so that there may be no misunderstanding in the future”
