    I do think that it serves a purpose. This board can self-moderate, to an extent. If people aren't abusing that, reputation (particularly bad repuation) works well.

    As for the good rep, it does make things a little faster for replying to someone. I'm just not fond of the fast reply, you know? By replying directly to your post, Pacha, I'm letting you know I found what you wrote interesting enough to respond. The difference is that other people will also see what we are discussing, and could jump in and agree (or disagree!) and embiggen the conversation.

    They've put "embiggen" in the dictionary now, yes?

    Right next to cromulent (it's a very poorly alphabatized dicionary).

    LSPE, as for getting a lot of reputation because you know a lot of people who were at the board at the beginning...well, umm, then you have a reputation don't you? I don't see a real issue with people who are known by lots of other people getting a lot of reputaiton. That's what the definition of reputation is.

    Meanwhile, it's not completely meaningless. Positive reputation is positive reputation, no matter how much. But on this board, if your total reputation slips into the negative, you'll find yourself only able to post in the Litter Box until you can either get enough people to give you positive reputation, or convince a moderator to manually adjust your reputation back to positive.

    I've had people give me negatvie rep without saying why or for reasons I don't agree with but I don't care.
    As long as I'm out of the red zone & far away from it I don't care.
