    Spiteful neg rep?

    Although I've been reading these forums for a few months now, I'm pretty new around here in terms of being a subscriber.

    I have hardly posted anything to the forums, and certainly nothing that would warrant someone 'spitefully' leaving a message "have some neg rep", meaning my rep is -111 !

    Just what is it with some of the nasty people in these forums? The thread where the rep was left is no longer available, but I cannot imagine why someone would want to do that in the first place.

    It's really put me off bothering with Edugeek to be honest.

    I don't suppose who ever did it is willing to 'stand up' and explain themselves? Just what did I do that warrants you acting in such a spiteful and unwelcoming manner?

    Sorry to here that, it might be worth sticking a message in the Message the Admins forum so they can investigate what has gone on. I'm sure there is a way they could revers the negative rep if they find it's someone being stupid.

    Penny Arcade! - Green Blackboards (And Other Anomalies) edit: relevant, but possibly NSFW
    Online disinhibition effect - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    or TLDR: The internet is full of idiots, ignore them and go about your business.

    Of course, this assumes that you weren't being a complete arse in the thread that no longer exists. If you were, then you may have deserved some of it.

    I have posted a message to the admins, so we'll see what happens.

    EDIT :

    well someone's given me some positive rep now - thanks for that!

    Any gamers remember CU@LAN - does that still exist?

    techtopia, I wouldn't worry about it too much, whoever is doing it has obviously too much time to kill and they should be getting on with some work :-)

    i was left the same comment 'have some negative rep' on a thread. I thought i had a fairly good idea who it was, but now i'm not so sure. The worst thing is that there's no explanation/justification, just an attitude of don't like different opinions from some people so there.

    Don't appear to have, and the nsfw part is tricky for web filtering to log, but amended the post for those unfamiliar with PA. There's a bowdlerized version somewhere, but it lack the impact of the original.

    Rep? Ignore it, I'd rather let words speak instead of some little bar. The rep meter has been a source of controversy for some time as it's accuracy is questionable at best sometimes.

    Its listed in the usercp (click settings next to your avatar at the top) at the bottom. Only admins can see who left you rep using the admin sytem.
