    I guess I'm trying to raise this issue for those new posters who've just joined & it can really break their spirit sometimes getting neg rep -20 from a bully who had multiple infractions but still had their Rep Power intact.

    But who cares about new posters anyway...
    I do care about new posters. Let's do this...

    Tell me which poster has a rep power of 20+ and bullies new posters by neg-repping. Exactly .. I think this thread has run its course.

    Well as mentioned here by other posters as well, Cy used to do it to me and other posters here all the time.

    But I've tried to stay clear of him and hadn't had a neg rep from him for a while (he's never pos rep me by the way).

    I can't say whether or not he's doing it new posters though.. as you guys are now BFF may be you could ask him for me?

    Also that's just 1 guy I had a run-in with, I have no idea who else is out there.

    I'm not being a jerk, just suggesting that Cy, as the only known example of the author of this thread, that hasn't had one by Cy in some time, maybe should have made things a bit more clear. I think it's all overblown.

    Dutch woud be another.

    I'm not on here 24/7 and have slowed down my posting in recent years so that's all I know.

    What I would do is straight away decrease Rep power by say 5. I'm pretty sure they'll stop what they were doing before and start acting like civilized people.

    I just don't get how someone can get a 1 week ban, go have a holiday, come back and bully honest-everyday-posters around just because they still have their 20+ Rep power in tact.

    Just my 2 cents.

It's just that you start to get people who have high Rep Power acting stupid that's the issue IMO.

    Rep is not the issue, it's how we can fully utilize it.

    Rep power is all these guys have over us average posters. Take that away and I bet you, you'll see a change in attitude.

    When I was a new poster to this place Cy was definitely one of those who would just neg rep you -20 simply for messing with his mood. (I wouldn't be surprised if he'd neg rep me for this post, but who cares). I toughed it out, took it on the chin, because I enjoy 90% of the discussions I have here.

    Which other new posters have Cy done this to? We'll never know. Should he be penalized for this sort of behavior? Absolutely. Why he's still walking around with 27+ Rep is beyond me.

    To the Mods: not all new posters are going to report this kind of thing. It can come out as whiny and most people just don't wanna bother. (For all my time here I've never reported a neg-rep be it bully in nature or otherwise). So if you can't monitor this, I think it's pretty stupid. If you have a Rep system going, you've got to be able to monitor it. If you can't, then you've got to take it out IMO.

    Easiest way is for Mods to look into Neg Repping Records, this should easily catch guys who Neg Rep on a regular basis, and you can then keep an eye on them. I don't think there are that many anyway that are ruining it for most of us.

    I had a few minutes to kill. Just thought I would clarify, precisely, the OP's position. This should clear things up, fine.
    Btw, I ain't hatin' .. just entertaining myself.

    Nah.. I quit hating people earlier this year when I came to Christ.. he had really changed my heart and it's actually quite hard to really really HATE someone.. hard to explain that feeling, but hope you know what I mean. Most of the time I just feel sad when injustice is done to someone that's all.

    If all this thread had done is bring this issue to the fore so that we can recognize the issue when it arises and report it to the Mods then I'm happy. I certainly have nothing to gain by starting this thread, it was just an idea I had from my experience, as I was once a new poster in this forum as well.

    I just didn't want the same thing that happened to me to happen to new posters.

    God bless.

    Well, it looks like you were effective and the mods have listened. Go check out Cy's new rep power.

    NAOS is the only poster who I repeatedly neg repped for the sake of neg repping. (That I can remember, I may have done it to Dutch and Troutbum too though (which goes against your theory that top posters only go against new posters, we frequently **** with each other, probably more so than new posters.)

    Hotnickkkkkkkk, I never intentionally singled you out for neg repping onslaught, you just brought it upon yourself because 50% of your post were laughably bad and ridiculous. I probably haven't negged you in a while because A.) You got less dumb or B.) I've stopped posting/reading as much as I use to on this site.

    Hopefully it's more of option A, for your sake.

    Also, I can only see 1 negative reputation given out by myself dating back to the 13th of October. I gave it to JazzSpazz for this comment
    There are two Michigan State Universities?

    Damn, I'm honored you once considered me number one.

    The one huge positive of negging though is that it identifies the out-right trolls who actually post 100% nonsense, but not ban-able nonsense.

    Also, who was it that was signing my handle to neg reps? You created some problems with me and other posters that I didn't find out about for a year or more. Pretty entertaining stuff so you should fess up and take credit.
    I don't think I ever did. I always signed mine as historical figures.

    Rep serves one purpose to me, it's funny to watch other people freak out over it. I couldn't care less if I had 0 rep tomorrow. It wouldn't change the way I posted, or the way I acted to anyone on this board. I would still neg your ass if you said something stupid, and I would rep it for funny/intelligent comments.

    I do enjoy when I neg someone, and they go crying to Jazzfanz like I murdered their dog. When they neg me back it doesn't bother me at all. To be honest, NAOS had his most brilliant move by pos repping me. I don't know why, but it actually made me mad when he did it. He stopped after a while though and started negging me back and all was right with the world.

    The fact that it creates this much discussion/controversy is the reason it should stay up though. It's fun. If you take it seriously, reevaluate your views on internet message boards.
