    It was a troll. They sent out about 10 neg reps in the last hour with disgusting comments. I removed the comment and banned them. Will also be changing the rep system today to prevent this type of thing from occurring in the future.

    I thought you were going to make sure the identities of the comments were revealed? That would cut down the bad ones if they knew their names would be displayed.

    I was considering that at first, but would rather identities remain concealed. Being anonymous can make some people more inclined to write fabricated neg comments, however anonymous neg comments can also lead to constructive criticism and can be useful. The new changes will prevent inactive users from utilizing the reputation system. 99.99% of the trolls so far join and send out 100 neg reps w/o posting at all.

    Also, it's important NOT to release the identities of anyone who has already sent out a neg with the idea that their identity would be concealed. That would just be a bad thing.

    I think the rep system is..... unnecessary. I was going to say stupid but I'm teaching my daughter that stupid isn't a nice word. It's far too easy to abuse and I think we have more than enough pissing contests around here without adding in the ability to give people 'rep'.

    Just my .02 -shrugs-
