    I can't believe this thread is even here much less still alive.

    Is it possible to neg rep a whole thread?

    If people would start giving out +rep for positive behavior, then there would be little or no sting to the -rep. I don't think anyone can stop people from giving -rep (unless it was disabled). But, I do hope I can encourage others to give out +rep to posts they feel add value to the forums.
    Yes things like 2 years ago in a Forum I told someone that was starting out not to buy a 9mm QR fork because I thought that standard was dieing & would be replaced, Now some one brought that thread back to life & someone neg Repped me for that comment 2 days later.

    I brought & payed for a Santa Cruz Tallboy & didn't like it at all for what I like to ride.

    When posting that I didn't like it & that others should ride 1 1st & just not take other peoples word for it My Rep got whiped out big time.

    Whats more now some Tallboy owners are starting threads trying to sort the problems I was finding & now I just don't want to help.

    So I am less help to people on this site because of the Neg system, I just can't be bothered.

    You know I don't care if someone doesn't like what I have to say, I'm not always right none of us are, But when some ***** can whipe out your hard work to build good rep that just sux

    Just my 2 c

    If you go against the masses you will be singled out and punished and it doesn't matter if you were right all along. A negative when you were alone usually won't be replaced by a positive once things come out. Not just on here either.

    I've gotten a few negatives, anonymous. As mentioned, keyboard commandos. How will I know who to put on the Ignore list?

    Ha! just got a negative rep from a thread over two years old!

    What kind of folks search through years old threads and leave negative rep?

    Just for that I'm giving out positive reps on this thread to offset the suckyness!!

    There's been some great builds and info. passed out in the last 24 hour period just like every other day. Many more great posts than the ten allowable reputations. I think this really needs to change. There will never be a way to catch up if it stays that way.

    Just happened to me today and what a CRAPPY experience it is when the keyboard commados commence to internet bullying. Naturally the more i posted the worse it became so i shared some neg rep myself for what was totally unnecessary from these members.

    yes sir i do. I found myself replying to defend my original post as well as subsequent postings from others.

    Absolutely positively nothing was done to provoke such antics by these members, no disrespect, i didn't call out their momma er daddy, no name calling etc.

    Sorry I cant give you a positive rep on the video ... I've given too many in a 24hr period and because of my short term memory , by tomorrow I would have forgotten this ever happened...

    I read that thread, and you came across as pretty arrogant. I can understand why someone would neg rep you for it.

    +1

    It can sometimes stop you giving ot rep when you feel you should.

    Yes we are a bit lucky with the trails around here, The hardest part is working out what one's to do next.

    I may have to add some music next time.

    my replies to the above post and subsequent posts are me responding to implications and attacks from others that went OT and derailed it temporarily. So yes i'm going to make a stand in the face of attacks and as it turns out neg rep for doing so...WTH is that??!!
    I stand by my statement. Things were fine until you started the "ASSume" thing and started insulting people. They weren't attacking you, rather pointing out that your statement wasn't relevant. Simply because someone doesn't agree with you doesn't mean they're attacking you.
