    Hope this is not the case.

    Today I checked my reputation and found out that, a while back a JR VIP member here named ed4252 gave me a negative rep, because I had commented on a thread.

    He told me to "Mind your own business until you have more quality posts"

    Right away I was taken back.
    When I went to check the thread he had given me the -neg rep on I almost choked laughing. Here this so called JR.VIP had given me a -neg rep on a thread that was closed BECAUSE he was fighting with a moderator.

    Ed4252 if you are reading this I only have one thing to say to you.

    Grab the top of your head firmly in BOTH your hands and shove it quickly
    UP YOUR ASS!

    You are in my opinion a disgrace as a Jr VIP.

    [/rant]

    Thanks for those who understand how I feel.

    Terrorizing good members here with -neg rep because they don't agree with you is so grade 2 .

    [/now rant end]

    Some people are dicks. Luckily, anyone can positive rep you for contributing anything of use to anyone. Equally luckily, it's a number next to your name on a web site.

    EDIT: Did you have 1 more rep when you started this thread? If so: lol.

    No rep abuse is allowed. If someone is caught unjustifiably neg-repping someone they can be subject to being banned.

    Personally, I have never neg-repped anyone on the forum. I think it's a chicken shit thing to do. If you have a problem with someone's thread or post, or if you have some sort of beef with them, it is more honorable to make a rational reply and tell them why you did not like something they said or did.

    Slicer, I already told you via PM, that we cannot remove neg rep. I wouldnt worry about it so much. Members understand that we have no control over who reps you. My advice is if someone does neg rep you, then stay clear of that member.

    Well the fact that he let you know who he was is a sign he wasn't trying to abuse the system. The members name is not included in rep + or - unless the member chooses to type it in. In most cases when you get a -rep you won't actually know who gave it to you.

    It's unfortunate you got a neg rep for making a comment, but if you made the comment in the midde of someone elses argument then you were taking somewhat of a risk. Especially if both of them have been around awhile and you hadn't had made many of your own posts yet.

    Not saying that it's right or wrong, you might have even intended it as a helpful comment. But in the situation you described I don't think it really amounts to abuse of the system. Mostly just an example of human nature.

    Don't let a neg rep get you down. No one likes getting a neg rep, but if you make good quality posts and try to offer help when you can, then your rep will likely increase over time. An occassional neg rep won't really matter.

    In all honesty all you did was made it worse. You make a thread complaining that you got a neg rep. Now how many neg reps do you think you will get for making this thread?

    I did not make this thread worrying how many would neg me reading it.
    I made it BECAUSE I believe that the real members here are feeling the same as me.

    If we as members have to worry about REP ABUSE before creating or participating in threads then it is a sad statement. I mean it's not the WF here is it?

    I welcome any healthy criticism and feed back.

    insulting another member on the forum in this manner is not.

    If you worry about Neg Rep PERIOD, then you have a problem...

    neg rep doesnt reflect that big on you, Like I said before, members know how others can be assholes and do it just to do it. End of story.

    This thread is getting carried away because you got a neg rep by a JrVIP member 3 months ago.
