    I think people like that should be banned. And I am not kidding either.

    There are 2 of a kind.

    Posting the actual info and then asking rep/thanks, still that isn't the correct way to do it, if the person feels that you contributed something useful, they will give +Rep

    The 2nd kind is like this guy, will not offer link until he receives rep/thanks, which made me pretty much feel like giving him a neg rep (I won't though).


    I really think that a new rule for at least the kind of thread which u wont give info unless you get rep, these thread should be banned.

    I think all reps and thanks deriving from that thread should be deleted.
    Protect the link by all means but whore out your ass for them is another thing.
    He could of just asked for people to post to receive the link.

    This really sucks!!! Is trading reps+thanks allowed? If it is, then it shouldn't be.

    I dunno why but that made me laugh.

    I agree though, share if you want to or don't share but I guess people care about being popular on Internet forums...

    You don't make yourself popular, the people do.

    I was sure there was a rule about asking for rep and thanks.. Can't seem to find it. Maybe I just made it up.

    They should be banned. It is not a competition for get more rep or thanks. You receive your thanks when you are sharing.

    I think we gave you rep and thanks because we got your humour. At least, that's why I gave it. :D
