    People want to be loved. No one cares about rep in and of itself. People just seek the approval of others. Neg reps hurt, I'll admit it, even if it's just a little bit because you don't think much of the person giving it to you it still doesn't feel good. When I make a post and feel like it was clever or well thought-out or informative it absolutely feels good to get a pos rep for it. It's positive affirmation.

    The little number under my name means a lot less, but during a dry spell I can still look at it and say "At one time at least for a moment someone valued what I'm doing here."

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.
    Amen brother.

    There are a few people who have negged me and the minute I made the post, I knew they would. Didn't bother me even a half a nanosecond. Not even one little bit of hurt.

    I just had an epiphany. What if we strengthened the 'ignore' feature of this site. Making it that if you ignore a poster... not only do you ignore the poster's posts, but you also block all reputation comments from the poster (both positive and negative). Would that help alleviate reputation concerns? I think it might help with someone who feels like they are being bullied by another poster. That was someone could just ignore the bully/poster!

    Wow! Yes Yes!! Why not??!! I don't see any negative side to that. Also for the person doing the negging, it should come up on their screen that the person has ignored you - so that hopefully automatically teaches them to be nicer and/or make up with that person somehow.

    Is that button easy enough to put in though??

    That could be fun. I could just neg every poster here and put everyone on ignore. Ultimate punk.

    Hotnickkkkkkkkkk hasn't even acknowledged my positive rep to him. Typical. Complain about the negs, never thankful for the reps.

    Was mostly joking, though I do find it annoying that every time someone gets neg repped, they feel the need to cry to everyone about it. Then, when you pos rep that person, nothing is said. If you are going to complain incessantly about every neg, then you should show gratitude for the reps.
