I wish Taco would release a list of the people who've e-mailed him with the most tearful complaints. That would be way more entertaining than the latest crap from ESPN.

Sometimes small misunderstandings can be easily ironed out by PM chats behind the scenes... but sometimes things are going to erupt into open hostilities, too... and I have no problem with that. However... when people (potential new board members) stop by for their first visit ... do we really want their first impression of the 'Mane to be clicking on the top thread of the main board to find a knockdown, drag-out flame war? I'm not sure that's the ideal image we, as a community, want to project... and it's not like there aren't other "in the open" places to stage the entertainment.

You have to earn bad rep, you can't just beg for it.

Mock's kitten has decided to take unilateral action against a q-tip in a premptive strike....I guess he has been watching too much Faux News.

He also loves to chase my Mr. Peanut Underwear. (don't ask)

I just gave out my first neg. rep. about 20 minutes ago.

Why are there two threads about rep on the main board? I had to pop Gonzo for starting the 2nd thread. What are the chances he retaliates?

It's funny. I gave my only neg rep to a baby who was complaining about getting neg rep. He asked for it. It's more like he advertised himself for it.

It's kinda like the Panther who was whining about getting spit on during the SB. What good does it do to cry about getting spit on or getting a neg rep.

You generally have solid takes I just thought it was amusing that you would go out of your way to complain about one neg rep. I figured if you got another you would stop complaining about it. And I believe you did.

How the heck is everyone supposed to agree with everybody's takes all the time. That is why the options for rep are.......I agree or disagree with your post. It's pretty straightforward if you ask me.

If it makes you feel any better for me to say it in the open I will. Heavy I think you were a p***Y for complaining about a neg rep you got.

I didn't always leave my name on postive rep and I didn't leave my name on your neg rep.


If you would have read the take "here" and "then" you would have noticed I have no problem getting Neg rep. My Problem was that it was a one word Expletive, with no name attach. The Person threw a one word neg rep, that didn't tell me why he or she didn't like my post or give me any info on how to improve my post.

I just think it's funny how you where so behind the new feature and trying to improve the board, yet you lowered yourself to the standards you where against? If my takes where solid why then have I never received a positive rep from you? But the minute I question why I get a one word neg rep with no clear meaning, you bash me. You tried to carry yourself as Mr. Good bar around here, yet you act like this? Meck you may be a great guy, I really don't know, but when you say one thing then do the opposite it really makes you look bad. Also popping of with you little tude (Heavy7) really makes me think less of you now more than ever (Yes I know you could give a crap). You talked a good game ,but I see the real Meck. Getting nameless one line neg rep from a KC, Raider fan that does it for fun is one thing. Getting it from a fellow Bronco fan and a person that I have talked to many times on here that was wrong. I come here for fun a to share info and Idea's not for all the B.S that goes on. Same B.S. you told me you didn't want. How can you ever expect to build the board up with the "Old Boy" mentality going on.

The person who Neg rep me sent me a PM and we worked it out there, he or she told me what there reason was and we squashed it. Seems you could have done the same thing. I didn't say names or call anyone out into the open. I just wanted the person to know how I felt about them before I knew it was them and how I felt after finding out it was them. The respect I had for both dropped a few points. Yes I did have respect for what you do, and have done for the board and the tailgating. (Yes I know you could give a crap) For now I'm done talking about this in public, and filling the board with this Negative junk. If you want to continue in PM it's all good.

Come on Mock, you just popped me with a negative rep for thinking its a popularity contest and agreeing with it! I dont care mind you, when I bother to hand out rep again i might throw some back your way.

I guess, for you, I should take it as a positive comment eh?

If someone chooses to defend Kansas, they are on their own. Bleh.

Old Dude, were you the one that gave me bad rep for my gun picture? Thats the only one i dont know about. I think someone was just making a joke since I made the comment about "anyone give me bad rep and this is what you get" with the picture underneath.

I dont care if you give me bad rep Old Dude. I dont give you good rep and expect it in return, i give you good rep on posts I dubiously agree with and because you have some of the most solid takes on this board. Same with Tredici and Blueflame (partially, her return rep is worth 20 points i have noticed so I did try to pimp rep from here especially since TJ cant take a ****ing joke and bad rep'ed me for some stupid **** and his is also uber-weighted). I dont care anymore. bad rep good rep, whatever. I know who likes me and who doesnt now and the rest of the people I didnt like anyway so they can all just kiss my ass.

That kinda came off wrong and I want to clarify. I give rep ONLY to people that deserve it. I didnt mean to imply I only give rep to blue because her rep is weighted.

i think those of us that are familiar with your posts all know what you meant.

here's a rep question.

obviously the orange dots are good and the black dots are bad.
how do the blue dots come about?
i have a couple of those with nice comments attached.

anyway, no biggie but i was curious since when i give rep the only options are approve or disapprove so im wondering where this third choice is.
thanks in advance for an answer.

The blue dots jake are rep (either pos or neg) from people that do not have enough reputation built up yet to affect your rep rating. Its a neutral rep whether they did you for pos or neg it doesnt matter, you get no points one way or the other for it.

Jake,

I was told that those are people who have little (or at the time had) not much rep themselves. The more Rep a person has the more there's count when ther give it out.

I honestly don't remember what I bad-repped you for. Like I said, I retaliated against several people at the same time, after receiving an anonymous bad-rep - - that turned out to be from a lurker - of all things.

Anyway, I stopped bad-repping people well before the veil was lifted, except for dumping on a few rival fans - just because.

I always enjoy your posts Alec. Anyone who digs Zelazny has got to be a cool dude.
