    To be honest I think that the whole rep thing is stupid. It is all to easy to abuse a system like this and just go around giving people negative points just because you do like the person or because you do not agree with what they said. Also we should all have the right to see who has given us rep points, especially negative as we can then respond to it accordingly.

    I believe the admins have fairly fine grained control how the rep system behaves. Including disabling negative rep and allowing/disabling the display of various information related to rep.

    The rep system seems good to me, those who post good info will be repped and therfore will be shown to be those "in the know".

    well, what are we; mature adults or immature children? I'm sure the majority of us are above negative-repping someone just as we don't like what they've posted.

    I have to disagree with you there. Their has been a lot of flaming, personal attacks and immature behaviour on the forums in recent months and I don't think that this will go away overnight. I suggest that you go and read some of the old threads to see how people have behaved on here.

    True, but the rep system could actually help with that. If someone is being flamey, then neg rep can be assigned, and if someone is getting a lot of bad rep (which the admin's will see) they can look into it easier and deal with it.

    This is very true, it can be difficult sometimes for us to decide just how much a particular member is causing grief... there's 5000 of you to keep an eye on!

    As long as the system is used as intended it is pretty much self policing. It is also flagged up if somebody receives a particularly bad rep or if somebody is trying to abuse the system.

    You should look at it more as a reward for receiving good advice than a way of belittling others.
