    This is getting ridiculous guys... I know for a fact that mods delete one or two such threads each day and and yet there are 1-2 new threads popping up every fucking day.

    There's some troll apologizing for neg repping people.
    There's some Jr VIP making fun of the person who thought they were -99 repping him.
    and it goes on and on.

    Who the fuck in their right mind would worry about rep and shit? Does it make your rich? NO? Then worrying about it and make some fucking money.

    Sorry for swearing but damn... these threads are making me mad.

    good post, + rep (just kidding)

    yeah, rep collecting has become a popular past time here on bhw.. I once replied in a facebook like giveaway thread.. and the OP sent me by PM "ok, preparing the giveaway, but please give thanks and rep"

    its sad really

    I keep seeing these threads too and they're annoying, but your thread is the same thing so if you want it stopped then don't post about it at all and just ignore it. What you're doing is like trying to shush someone who is making noise but the shushing is just making the same amount of noise.

    Yeah rep and thanks must be given if the member contribute to the community or help other members.

    I think you can receive infractions if you abuse the rep system?

    The saddest part that all these threads have in common is that the "poor" threadstarters get even more +rep from naive/blinded members for opening such threads.

    The "follow me" threads annoy the shit out of me, more than any other type. There should be instant bans for such noob creations.

    OP is 100% right but:

    Open a stupid thread like that and you get repped, ergo:
    Low rep = apologize, giveaways, copy/paste old BHW threads or other forums
    Medium rep = Milestones, more copy/pasting, thank you threads, advise threads(Some even written like an article)
    High rep = Search for the rep mill till you get here.

    For all ranks there seems to be a silly idea of repping the one that repped you. Talk about creating a mill.

    Now, if people used the other braincell to realize this pattern to take care of their rep hangups...
    Anyways, I logged in on other business. Carry on please. :)

    IMO reputation is just for an identity and if you deserve you get it.BHW has laid a good reputation system use it with knowledge.

    OP, although I agree completely with you, I in a way worry about reputation points since if I wanted to open a sales thread here every one without a doubt would look at my reputation points and prejudge me and not make a sale.

    I hate people here that can negative rep you for whatever reason they want to and that is not fair and also childish.

    Either way I am not caring for it, but as we know reputation points make a difference when offering services here.

    i really don't understand who taught you this and who said rep is essential for a BST.AFAIK quality and the prices are of real matters no matters who post it a member with high reps and post count or a member with low reps and post count :)

    There's a good way to deal with all the rep whores/worthless thread starters out there. Click through to their profile and ignore them. Worried you're missing some fantastic post? Don't worry, that won't happen. That doesn't fix BHW in general, but as far as the ignorer goes, its a much more peaceful place.
