    So, I know its a child-like thing to complain about posts, thanks, rep, etc but hey, its my FLAIR :p

    I got a negative rep point for a post I did supporting the OP, stating I was wrong....which I wasn't. I know who did it but I think that is one of the most abused features here.

    You can just click and shoot and they will never know, I think that is a bit messed up when those coward types (hint) do it.

    So why is it anon?

    My first repwas negative from some person I didn't even know. I was trying to help somebody and follow forum rules... oh well now I have 21 or something like that

    Anyways, it's actually good because everybody would be afraid to give negative rep because then somebody could get revenge and give them negative rep (if they are jrvip of course). People get really hung up on it and will do stupid stuff.

    It's better anonymous. I think that rep should be removable if it wasn't desrved. Maybe get a new staff position whose sole purpose is review rep and stuff like that so that the mods and admins don't get swamped with work. I'm sure a lot of people would be willing to do that for BHW (myself included)
