I got negged for saying Karl Malone was African American ....
I'm really bored. If someone doesn't posrep me soon, I'll start another thread.
Or maybe do 2500 posts in a thread called "Going for the Guiness World Record Longest Thread Ever".
It better stop snowing soon.
Reputation" is the things you've done in the past. If you have a good reputation, people know you to be someone who does good things. If you have a bad reputation, people know you've been a troublemaker in the past. Usually people assume that, if you have a bad reputation, you are still a person who does bad things. (Interesting.)
So, by saying "Your reputation precedes you," you're saying "I heard what kind of person you were, even before you physically got here." It's usually a bad thing, since bad reputations are gossiped about (not good ones).
I try hard to maintain a good post/rep ratio.
People have heard about you and your deeds your...ummmm reputation--the type of person you are, or appear to be. So, they've heard about you and know things about you before they've even met you.
Colton strikes again, negging me for inappropriateness againnnnnnnnnnnnnn
Fortune and glory, kid. Fortune and glory.
Is retaliatory neg repping a thing then? I've never done it and don't give out neg rep too often, but I sent this:
And got this back:I like you as a poster most of the time, but this thread is full of absolute garbage. Then you just dig yourself deeper.
Ridiculous. Neg rep returned.
