Wow!!!! I was getting all depressed and down that I wasn't being neg repped & feeling quite left out. Then I found I had been!!! It seems to have all the hall marks of a classic neg too. No reason, the post was fairly innocuous (was in Mattx's thread about driving while on the phone where I explained what a friend does so not even something I do or something I promote!!) and attempt at dialogue in the thread!!! I feel all warm and fuzzy now
If I don't like something, generally I'll just ignore it. That goes for everything. TV/Music/Books/Software/People...
You should have said... I would have neg rep'd you for no good reason, with little/no explaination.

I got neg rep'd on here for posting a south park clip
The evening went very well until the third of fourth act. This guy asked me what my job was [intending to make a joke out of my reply as part of his act] Perhaps he was expecting a reply like Fireman, Policeman, Postman or whatever. When I replied with "Network Manager" he seemed stumped.
After a short delay [which seemed like an eternity to me] he said "Go f*ck yourself!" which broke the tension and got a good laugh from the whole audience.
I'm not offended by anything and I thoroughly recommend the B3ta book of sick jokes.
...but that is fair enoughI got neg rep'd on here for posting a south park clip
(I am not offended by South Park, I just don't find it funny!)
Though I don't think I've left neg rep for anyone since joining, mainly cos I feel it's a bit pointless. If I have anything to say, I like to say it in the thread.
But then that is the problem - when is a joke a joke, and when does it become an insult? Personally I see Frankie Boyle as an ignorant man who doesn't know the difference between the two, and thinks that having a go at someone for something they can do nothing about (such as appearance) is actually funny.
Other than that -IMHO racism, sexism, violence or threat of violence are not acceptable on a forum like this.
Ultimately though, it is Dos_Box's decision as to what is acceptable - it is his site.
No, I didn't neg rep you, Cesil
*just out of interest, how would those of you who think anything is acceptable feel if a comedian told a joke about, say, the death of your son?
Happened to a friend of mine - don't really think that is acceptable, do you?

I can understand people giving you a neg rep you swore or the images were obsene but other than that...
