    You made me chuckle audibly or are a voice of sanity/you are a complete idiot and your post had no redeeming features. So 2 and 3 I suppose.

    I think so anyway. It tends to be impulse, I don't reason it out every time...

    The Muslims of the religion forum do love their indiscriminate repping.

    I don't really have a set MO for rep distribution. The only people I'll consistently rep one way or the other are people who help me with questions or post something that's extremely bigoted. Aside from that I'll rep posts that are particularly well/poorly thought out, and throw in the occasionally +rep for comedy gold. A mixed bag really =P

    Lol at the last poll option. Religion is the only forum where I've seen near equal distributions of rep on any given post on the first page, it's as if both sides are caught in an endless struggle.

    I don't really reflect on it at the time but it would probably go: 'You made me spit out and choke on my Pepsi' / 'Your head is so far up your arse, I'm surprised you can't see your intestine wall'.

    Occasionally, 'I need to rep you in order to rid of the PRSOM message' (very frequent given I don't rep/neg much).

    A pinch? A truckload seems more appropriate.


    There's been approximately 1bn threads about rep since I joined the site.

    i like / don't like what you are saying.

    Occasionally I also neg if I can't be bothered to respond, but still want to express my feelings toward a post I disagree with.

    Good argument/bad argument. Although I rarely rep something I disagree with even if it is a good argument. I wouldn't neg someone just because I disagreed with them - their argument would have to be poor too.

    Interesting. I never revenge neg. Sometimes I'll message them or contact them to ask why they disagreed but I don't care nearly enough to revenge neg. plus it's so petit.

    Yeah I know it wasn't you. I can see who negged me but I shan't respond or return the favour as much as I'm sure they'd like me to for the sake of irony.

    I'll start planning a new hype soon. I might start a thread for ideas.
