You know, I never even paid attention to this "reputation" feature before noticing that I had been deemed as having "shameless behavior in my past". But now that I'm thinking about it.... Isn't it weird that you can anonymously "dis" people, and they can't see who did it or why, and it follow them around on every post? That just strikes me as completely ridiculous.
You can see who - just go to your profile - it sayd who rated you and what they rated you and why...
I can't see who put 'em there (maybe you have more privileges), but I can see the posts they go to. I can only see why if someone happened to add a comment. They didn't in the case where my reputation was negatively affected.
What is funny is I got my "shameless behavior" for agreeing with someone that said that Phillip Glass sucks. That is completely hilarious. What is this place anyway?... "The society for creative anachronisms: Victorian edition"? Also, that person is now "banned". I wonder why? Maybe Phillip Glass is a moderator!?!?!
In the same vein I think that the 'ignore button' is a poor feature.....just think, maybe no one is seeing what you have written anyway!! I just have this feeling sometimes that people are PM ing the moderators to complain about threads if we're slightly blue or provocative.....it has a feeling of a 'holier than thou' secret service and informers....I don't like it....
I hope this forum doesn't become too harshly policed, too monastic, to the point where it's kind of a 'Stepford Wives' place.....for example, I was warned recently not to use mixed up 'bad words'!!
I know.....if I don't like it I know what I can do!!
