    Actually no, you should only see thanked posts. There is a good reason for this. Its to stop tit-for-tat rep wars which I have seen happen on other forums.
    All rep is logged so if its bad we (Site Admins) can investigate it further if requested.

    Rep Power

    So ... let me check if this is right?

    If you thank people they earn points.

    If you give rep, the points they get are based on the points you have plus the number of posts they have made?

    The rep points also increase on the 3rd friday of every month beginning with M and negative rep can be eliminated by the careful use of Vanish before washing your clothes ... erm ...

    I am still not sure about it, but I will give thanks where deserved. Perhaps it is just that I am not a negative sort of person.

    I can see that someone gave me rep power, although I can't see who - that potentially stops the tit-for-tat that you mention. Surely it has to be this way - how would I request you to investigate my bad rep if I didn't know I had it?!
