    Reputation points isn't something you should be worried about. It's not like having a high rep or lots of thanks pays your bills or gets you anywhere in life. Just numbers on a website and nothing more...

    Of course it's not a totally 100% accurate measure of a member, as there have been members with very high rep do some very bad stuff. And of course lots of thanks or a high rep will not benefit you financially..

    But very often an abnormally low rep is an indicator of a general lack of professionalism (sometimes something worse), and it's defiantly something to take into consideration if you intend to make any sort of a deal with an individual.

    So yes, it does matter somewhat, and I'm glad the rep system is in place. If it wasn't, I think there would be a lot more threads in the shitlist.

    That's a pretty good point actually, didn't take that into consideration when i said what i did. One of the reasons i said that is because alot of negative reps are given out for the most ridiculous of reasons which happens more than enough on this forum. For instance, my rep right now is 9 also. Not because i was being unprofessional with someone or screwing someone over, but because of a lounge post i made. Reason given was "stupid post" lol. I do have to admit though, someone with 30+ rep and a few hundred thanks looks hell of alot more trustworthy than someone that has no thanks and -5 rep so i agree that rep does matter to a certain point.

    oh ya evil, I certainly wasn't implying that you or the op are untrustworthy or anything, and I do realize that neg reps can and are given out unnecessarily or for inappropriate reasons. Like you said, I mean the extreme cases.

    when i first started reading this forum, rep helped me separate the quality posts from the bullshit, back when i couldn't really tell the difference on my own :)

    Wow really? Its fucking rep on some internet forum. Who gives a flying fuck...

    You have too much time on your hands, no one cares about rep around here, I've met plenty of scammers with 20+ rep... it doesn't mean shit, all that matters is that you do what you said you're going to do, i.e. don't bullshit people and people will want to do business with you.
