    Hey Moderator's, Change these Rep points already!!

    How they 'get taken away', This is B.S.-----this thread of mine now is the perfect example. I started a great converation thread and a few Slimeballs (for lack of a better word) and some MTBR 'Tyrant' with 20,000 posts and 100 rep points doesnt like what i said--and proceeds to tell me they have taken mine away---THATS TOTAL B.S>

    Only Moderators should take them away for something malicious (or hate speech)------------------Me, I am not 'in the industry' --I just ride Hella' Trails---BUT for those in the Industry, who use this social media--to be losing a reputation based on some Fools (and a Tyrant) whatever they think is Absurd... This Needs to Change......


    Here is the thread---

    I checked out your thread. I would say the rep system is working as intended.

    I didn't think those Niner prices were outrageous.
    Now on the other hand, it can be difficult to find 29er specific, seatposts, cranksets, grips etc.
    You sometimes have to use adapters to fit 650b and 26er components to a 29er frame...

    Maybe a little less caffeine. Nice builds, BTW.
    I'm enjoying my childhood way too much to ever give it up.

    You are lucky that your rep points were all that the Niner Secret Mafia took away. Be glad you still have your family and your home.

    When browsing from the Tapatalk mobile ap, you don't even see rep points.

    Losing rep does not limit your ability to do anything, so you don't need to panic too much.
    When under pressure, your level of performance will sink to your level of preparation.

    Awesome. Starting a thread to complain that people called you out for starting another thread to complain. Keep it up, complaining clearly works for you....

    I know what typing LIKE THIS means and maybe even LIKE THIS. What does typing like this represent? Is that like, speaking through gritted teeth but with your voice controlled? Kinda like "get off my lawn?"

    P.S. You should get negative "Rep" just for your signature alone.

    Well, actually just ranting a little (I know its just a forum, but people who respond to mine do get all HOT AND BOTHERED!!!---and i did not highlight that one.... It's all in 'good fun'---I just think I did have a point (with this post and the viability of Rep points--for those who get them and rely on them) people in the industry, etc... (wheel builders, 29.com, whatever) I'm just saying it is a Bad System of how you take away points (and any fool should not be allowed to do that based on one little thing they might have not liked that you said... Plus in my initial post about NINER, I, and alot of others who PM'd me think I have a point--but are too afraid of agreeing with my post because of 'losing their rep points'....... Added to that my Post has been censored----MTBR Can't handle the truth, yeah i highlighted that one--------247

    i do not have enough facepalm to distribute for the near future train wreck of a thread this will become.

    OP - as a friendly FYI....in my experience anyone who starts a 'rep' thread quickly sinks neck high in a sea of red chiclets...

    Honestly, I never really even cared about rep points. As long as I can express my opinions, I am happy with it.
