    You've been here long enough to know that whinning about rep points isn't a good thing....

    For someone complaining about other peoples English skills your thread is littered with mistakes and is very difficult to read. In fact, I may have misunderstood your point entirely.

    Rule Number One - Don't ever whine/cry/beg for rep points.

    Looks like you've broke it.

    Bingo! You are welcome to your opinions, obviously, but when they are expressed as "smartass comments" they are often deemed unacceptable. And no, the board is not "hitting rock bottom fast" because people want some sort of standards set.

    I am most confident that you were negged not for what you said, but how you chose to say it.

    And as redsfan pointed out, complaining about rep points is a big no-no.

    Focus on making good, solid posts and everything will take care of itself.

    To be honest, you really shouldn't concern yourself with rep points. I just enjoy coming here and chatting about the Reds, truly the rep points mean very little to me. It just gives me a place to come and vent after a loss, or a place to come and celebrate after the win, so rep points are down the list for me. No need in worrying about them.

    You have had your fair share of posts where your english wasn't exactly good.

    I doubt the issue was with one's English (or lack thereof), though I must admit, I've seen some poor reasons for negging people... and for giving rep points for that matter.

    Like cincrazy says, just have fun and state your opinion with no smart remarks, etc., and the rest will take care of itself (usually).

    Who cares about rep points? I haven't given them a second thought since they started that stuff.

    Why do we have rep points again? I kind of ignored that whole thing when it happened and I honestly forget what the rationale was except I can't post in the other board and it doesn't really matter because there is the exact same post on this board.
