    Newbies can't neg rep until they hit registeredd member status, so why are they allowed to post neg iTrader comments? It is ridiculious. We have some idiot in the CL section that hits people with BS neg iTrader posts. If you want a case in point, check out my iTrader comments.

    How is this a loophole? You can trade at any time which makes your feedback as valid as the next guys. For the record, you can't negative rep at registered member.

    I agree with you that it isn't a loophole. iTrader is the equivalent of having feedback on ebay. Anyone involved in a trade with someone should absolutely be able to leave iTrader. The difference between iTrader and feedback is of course that someone can leave it even if there was no trade. In that case you need to report it to a mod and hope to get it removed. Abusing the iTrader system by leaving negs for people you haven't dealt with will certainly result in a ban.

    The reputation system is dealt with differently because it's more of a popularity poll than anything else. It really doesn't affect anything you do on the forum. It will affect how people deal with you, but in real life a lot of people won't deal with the unpopular people either. And just like in real life a lot of the neg popularity given to people are seemingly undeserved. Overall if you get a few negs on your rep it isn't going to affect your use of the forum and it doesn't take much to get some plus rep to counter it.

    (I'm curious though about what makes you think a registered member can't get neg repped? That isn't true at all. Only Jr.VIP or above can give neg reps, but anyone can get them.)


    So a neg rep really doesn't mean anything more than someone didn't like what was said in a thread, or in some cases maybe someone just doesn't like you. That's just how popularity works. With iTrader though the score is an indication of how trustworthy you are in a deal. That value is much more important than rep points, so it should only be left when a deal has actually been agreed on. Anyone not involved in a deal should never leave iTrader points for someone at all.

    Sometimes the difference between manipulating itrade and genuine is thin.

    For example, one of my friend once provide adsense JV. He send traffic, people pay after they got paid. Of course most do not pay.

    So he split the deals into pieces. First he creates the blogspot first and the guy pays $50 in front and $50 in the adsense account. That way both sides know that the other is bonfaide.

    Then he expects itrade based on that. After all, it's indeed a trade. Also he requires testimonies in front for some initial works. If trouble starts in the beginning, it'll be big in the future when incentive to cheat is higher.

    One potential scammer then accuses him of scamming and he is the one that got permanently banned.

    Congratulations on reviving a 2 year old thread.

    I must say I had a laugh at the OP's issue.
