    Posting negative rep with another member's name

    Do you ban people for giving a negative rep and signing another members name?

    not banned.
    Some did sign others' name before the posts were automatically tagged with the user's name.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    So those who did it, don't get any punishment?

    It depends on who did it apparently. Some members have been permabanned for doing it.

    There were something that happened behind the scenes for some that got banned that also gave out rep using other's name such as sock puppets and estalking, etc.

    When the rep stuff first came around, somebody even actively encouraged others to sign other people's names. Childish, yeah, but now they look like tools.

    Well I had somebody sign another's name for negative rep and I thought "whatever". Then I delved a little into their post history and see the doofus even
    posted within a thread about using other people's names when handing out negative. Probably started sweating bullets when he seen the thread title.
    Figured he would be called out in that thread but I guess it was lucky day as it was another used being attacked. That user was apparently banned.
