I figured I'd make a thread to help aquaint some of the new members (and hopefully some old) with what I have always believed the rep function was for.
For those that dont know there is a place you can click below each posters avatar that alows you to leave positive or negative rep and a brief message for the poster, the green (good) or red dots (bad) below the avatar indicate how much good rep that poster has recieved, some people take a great deal of pride in there green dots and senselessly leaving negative rep will make you dislied quickly.
Now the purpose of Rep isnt a popularity contest, if you blindly love a fighter do not just neg rep every time somebody says something you disagree with, and example would be if you are a Chuck Lidell fan and I say that Chuck is a great striker but his BJJ is not on par with Nog, that would not be a neg rep worthy statement, its an opinion and one that is realistic and can be justified, now if I made an outlandish claim about how Sean Sherk could knock out Wanderlai Silva without even attempting in the slightest to justify it then that would be neg rep worthy as well as would any comment that unjustifiably belittles other posters or there intelligent discussion. I understand negative Rep for people who dont really want to discuss or debate opinions or have and interesting discussion but to those who seek to disrupt that peace by making outlandish claims and then continueing to argue there point without even trying to back it up with any kind of intelligent points.
