Adding to someone's reputation is a privilidge for all the members of the forum and should not be abused. Giving negative reps and not leaving your name is a cowardly thing to do, IMO. Especially when giving negative reps for disagreeing with an opinion. Negative reps should be reserved for abusive or insulting comments. The forum should set up an automatic reply that includes the person's name when repping someone. Can this be done.
Come on trip. Negs can be fun! I think leaving a neg because you disagree with an opinion is completely valid. After all, what are most positive reps for?
I've had endless entertainment from abusive reps as well. It's just silly nonsense. Who cares.
Having said all that, I've negged one person in the last 2 years! ( I think ) I would like to neg more, but people take it too seriously, which is never my intention.
