bad rep feature -- what's the point of it?... i would remove it lol.
OK. So I understand the point of bad rep is to discourage some posters from being stupid or posting assholic/mean posts. However, I think it encourages mean posters to give people assholic bad reps to posts that do not deserve such negative treatment. It's so discouraging for me to come on here and expect to be happy that I'm coming on wtaworld, and then I go look at my USER CP, and then get some randomly assholic bad rep from somebody. What bugs me is not the bad rep itself, but the rude messages that come with the bad rep and the fact that people can be so OKAY with being assholes!
I have to admit, I have given a few bad reps myself that I possibly shouldn't have given (i just gave it to them cuz i thought they were having a bad attitude), but I have stopped and only give them when someone is being completely out of line or someone was being randomly assholic and gives me a bad rep.
And besides, if we are trying to control what is being posted, if something is pretty bad, wtaworld does a decent share of banning already, so I dont feel like we need another negative control mechanism, especially when the control mechanism is abused by extremely negative people who have closed minds and derive pleasure from making other people feel bad when they have done nothing offensive.
