    Maybe @ZeroHour needs to confirm if something is up here and I am not supposed to have neg-rep super-powers for evil injustice...
    I don't have that option either, despite being a moderator!

    Is there a mistake somewhere @ZeroHour?

    The neg rep was removed because people (myself included) used to get neg rep for jokes or posts we perceived to be funny or to the point, and others felt were offensive and harsh. Then debates came about the said posts and it escalated. Rinse and repeat.

    Personally I think the rep should go, and just keep the thanks

    I've only given two red dots in six years so no worries about the rise of the new neg-rep fairy.

    (Especially once my permissions are fixed...)

    I think it pretty much has done just that. For example if you thank me in this post and then try to add rep too it says "you can't add rep twice". Go on try it if you don't believe me...

    yeh but I could rep you, and then thank you...

    Its the rep power thing, many people (again, myself included) used to make a big deal about having high numbers, the higher the numbers, the better in some peoples views. It led to some very petty things. I remember DaveP got neg repped on some of the news posts he put up.

    Hmm if DaveP is also a fellow news poster then that can't be the cause. Wonder why my account is behaving like that then.
