    Don't you guys miss the Neg Rep button?

    I see so many 'gurus' talking off their ass (just to promote their signature sometimes) when they have no clue and no experience. There should be a bullshit meter. A maximum shit that you can post on forum.

    I know it's easy to find yourself talking... when you don't know the subject, but there comes a time when you shut up, you think about it. You are speaking just to make noise or you have value to add to others?

    It's sad that they removed the neg rep button but there are definitely some people that misuse the button way to much to the point where it was not very "welcoming" to the new members that got neg repped all the time for basically nothing.

    People can give a voice if they get neg rep'ed, and mods can see who did it, after all...

    There isn't really a need for a neg rep button in my opinion, anyone who uses this forum often enough over time learns who and what to trust.

    The neg rep button is completely pointless. This is what that scenario looks like:

    What aspect of this scenario provides value to an SEO forum?

    I know the button won't come back. But if it would.. than it should be a privilege for those that contributed or showed some level of maturity.

    Reputation is judged on a persons character and business practices. Without seeing shiny green
    or red bars I know who I like to do business with and I also know the trouble makers. In real life
    I don't have a rep bar necklace and I don't see how it applies.

    A lot of the people I do business with I have met in-person or have them on my FB. It's been a
    long time now but I don't ever remember neg repping someone.

    Sorry but do you not see the irony in that statement?

    Sounds like a business opportunity.

    I wasn't part of BHW when Rep rating was available, but I'm guessing it was a total mess.
    Oh, and my rep is 5 :) I have no idea why.

    I agree, and I also wasn't around during the negative rep was available.
    I checked my rep right now and it says I have 3 rep power. :)

    I miss the good old rep days. I was there till the very end, things got heated and went ape shit when it became visible who your neg rep came from. Oh boy those times were hilarious as fuck, you'd get people neg repping those who they were supposedly friends with, you'd also get all sorts of ridiculous comments, or you'd get people who would neg rep you once go rep a lot of other people and neg rep you again as if it were a different person.

    RIP REP

    Neg rep was only available to Jr VIPS and both of you were around before it got taken down. ;)

    The neg rep feature should be available for measly packages of $99, $259, and $359. The $99-package has 20 neg rep credits, followed by 40 and 60, respectively.

    But wait - there's more. There should be a more expensive package called Neg Rep Plus (or minus) where you can double neg rep a post for no reason, plus a bonus of 500 Tier 2 contextual backlinks on a website of your choice. All this for $500.
