    I suggest to completely remove negative reputation for anyone except mods.
    A mod usually really knows why he gives negative rep.

    I guess 80+% of the reputation, no matter if negative or positive is just abuse/spam.
    The negative ones because people don't like that secrets are shared or to make competition or other members look worse.
    Positive rep is shared between members just to look better.

    Also reputation can be non-anonymous again once negative rep is removed, actually I'd find it good if everyone could see who gave positive rep to someones account and why he did so.
    That would further reduce the reputation spam.

    I've also heard a lot of complaints. My few negative reps are also usually spam.
    And I'm asked often to give + rep to people.

    While I have no problem giving people positive rep or a thanks, the current way reputation is handled renders it worthless in most cases.

    Good idea, though rep only has a slight impact on overall "real" reputation on BHW (Hence itrader and thanks)

    Regardless, i dont know why anyone would pay attention.

    1. Go to a warez board
    2. Find marketing ebooks/tools
    3. Post here
    4. Enjoy your ridiculous amount of rep + thanks for sharing other peoples work that they put time and effot into.

    EDIT: Infact we should remove rep + thanks in the download section. And have a small subsection for sharing our own works that we can get thanks for.
