    As a vbulletin site... I think there is a way to turn off reputation - or tweak it so it isn't as ridiculously bloated as it is now.

    Well said..

    My solution is the opposite though.

    REP bomb everyone (and I mean everyone) with positives that would be the same as no rep. Let people's words speak for themselves and over time someone who has something to contribute will be known. The trolls will be ignored and maybe go away.

    Again - as a vbulletin site... there is a way to allow users to "disable" their reputation system. So many potential solutions... why don't the mods do any of it? Your guess is as good as mine!

    Man, it's good to be back. I've learned my lesson.

    On a totally different topic, thread_cop PMed me and said he was going on vacation, so probably won't be posting for some time.

    Psshhhh... again - I have not the slightest idea. The logic by which this place is run eludes me sometimes.

    Some of us are willing to take a trip to ban camp like a man... apparently for some people, that "fight for flight" reflex kicks in, and they create an alt-account so they can continue gabbering even during the ban.

    Re: GET RID OF REPUTATION

    The rep system needs to be disabled or moderated. It's way better now you can figure out who left you rep, but allowing a troll to run unchecked for 8 months and leave helpful "feedback" such as "faggot" was too much. Not cool.

    On the other hand, I never gave so much positive rep as I did then, trying to mitigate the effect this was having on the boards. I still don't know why anyone would take the time or effort to create multiple accounts and try to harass people.
