    I just noticed that my rep went down. Not really fussed about the number but curious about what I said that pissed someone off so much they gave me negative rep.

    So, I looked on my CP and I have 2 new rep records. One is red, one is blue. They're both for the same post in the same thread (http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...backlink-service-post1636655.html#post1636655). One has a comment of cheers. One has a comment of lol (the red one).

    So if those are my only 2 rep wouldn't they cancel each other out so I'd stay at 10 or are neg rep (still not sure why it would be neg but whatever) weighted more heavily so you need more pos rep to counter them?

    Like I said, I'm not overly fussed about the fact that it's down to 9 as anyone could look at my posting history to see that I'm not generally a shit stirrer I'm just wondering about the process.

    THanks. :)
