Ok, but I think he was making a funny.
Those duff man posts were hilarious! He deserved the rep!
Within the last week or so, I made an effort* to obtain my first green gem. After doing so, a gang decided to neg-rape me. Am currently left with -181 points after just one post in which the recipient could not reply due to that lovely little 'close' function, and therefore ended up getting in a huff and puff. I don't see the point in sending the negative rep to a user who's already got a red gem.
generalebriety: For once, I agree with you in that conformity was required.
