    People tend to use the reputation as more of an "agree" or "disagree" button rather than saying that your post is wrong as such.

    Also, if you edit the post and say "why the neg", you're pretty much guaranteed more negs.

    Ok so two recent posts of mine have been negged horribly (i think) I dont want to seem like i'm taking this whole thing to heart everyone's entitled to their opinion but why do people neg unnessecarily rather than say why they disagree with you?

    Here is links to posts i'm not sure why i was negged for

    I realise i got good rep on some of them but its fine for people to neg me but im not sure what i said wrong? Sorry if im being stupid, still kind of new here!
    Well for a start never edit a post asking why people negged it, sure fire way to get even more negs.

    Yeah I also seem to have got a few unfair or just confusing Negs.

    I was a thread starter and simply asked for info on a subject and people negged me. It made no sense. I also got negged on the "You know youre a student when..." thread when I said "you've watched every diagnosis murder episode" I guess someone was offended by the show or something :/

    Try not to take it as personal, I think its all to easy for people to hit the button and im convined there are a few people who don't realise it affects rep and just think it's like a poll of something.

    No problem although for the 3rd thread you assumed the man was guilty/the music one the songs probs wasn't deep to the neggers so I can see why people would neg. Still I see no problem asking why people neg/pos rep you tbf. :yy:

    Haha, It's like some rating system for people begging for complements on facebook status'

    lpc = Looks, personality, closeness

    e.g 10,10,0 (people always put 10 even if they look like samantha brick)

    Yto = Your the one

    E.g your the one who's a cutey

    Sad I know...
