    Thanks for the heads-up. Was it wrong of me to + rep gregg's last post? I signed it.
    I'm enjoying my childhood way too much to ever give it up.

    Great stuff, im lovin it, as i love to read conflict and showdowns for entertainment this is great, lol.
    I wont have to change a thing, but a prime example is old monogod, as i sign my rep he has started two massive carry ons out on the forum following me from thread to thread with major butthurt because ive negged him.
    This is going to go on all the time now on the site and i think its going to be pretty funny, it will add more excitment to the site, imo its going to be like WW3....
    Its fantastic news, and it will stop the neg from the guys with no spine or balls because they wont have the balls to put their name next to it.
    Its great news all round....

    I only have one I'd like to repay their kindness, but I'm afraid that it will fall off of the list before this is implemented. Hopefully Repmageddon happens in time for XMAS, cause it s gonna be the gift that keeps on giving.

    I guess I better start putting some effort toward getting my rep count up. Can't go into repmageddon 2012 with only 69 rep power.

    Tone's didn't say it would be +, he might be starting his campaign to rep everyone into neg numbers before the onset of REPMAGEDDON, a preemptive strike.

    The trouble with auto signing neg rep is that you have to fear receiving a knee-jerk negative in retaliation, even when, perhaps especially when, the neg was warranted. So, basically everyone will be afraid to use it.

    I think the only solution is to eliminate negative rep entirely. Let rep stand as a measure of all the positive things a person has contributed. If you disagree with someone or they are being a jerk, call it out in the thread!

    It would be really cool if once this happens, all of your previously unsigned reps just became signed.

    If people are worried about retaliation neg rep maybe they'll think twice about handing out BS neg reps just for sh!ts and giggles. It could reduce the use of neg rep all together

    The future is bright here. I suspect there will be a lot more real red on the site as the Internet tuff guys get flushed out.

    How is that possible if your rep score is not over 200?

    Most of mine have rolled-off and I can't see them any more. Would be really great if I could "page back" into the reps received and view them all...

    In a way that's my point. the lack of anonymity eliminates the frivilous neg rep. BUT fear of frivilous retaliation eliminates legit neg rep. So, with everyone afraid to leave neg rep, legit or frivilous, might as well cut to the chase and get rid of neg entirely.

    May as well get rid of the whole thing at that point. I'm not in the camp of "everyone gets a trophy", stupidity should be punitive, if they want to retaliate so be it.

    Tone's is quite the charmer in his rep. He may be located in the bottom half of the world, but his spirit clearly rises above the equator.

    IME, it won't happen. I sign my negative reps. I haven't received a single retaliatory one, though admittedly, the spammers won't be utilizing the rep system anytime soon. Still, I have occasionally neg repped someone for being a jerk. and I have been neg repped for being a jerk. I know I was, and I'm sure they knew they were, too.

    I did receive a stupid neg rep recently, but unfortunately it's scrolled off the page.
