    I think people actually +rep less now then they used to, possibly because without negs to counter it, it seems to be worth less.

    If neg rep was back, there'd always be that one idiot who would be negging everything.
    But their neg would have no power!

    Really?

    I would never have thought of you as racist:/
    Most people don't.

    I have moderate OCD and as such I really don't like deviating from expected norms in lots of situations so I repressed it for ages.

    It's not the "Rawrgh put em all in a boat and sink it" EDL brand of Racism, nor the "We are genetically superior" Nazi brand.
    Just a mild undercurrent, most Anti-Semetism if anything.

    Personally, i miss the neg rep system.
    It was a good way to identify trolls and it was pretty fun annoying people haha
    I'm guessing that neg repping "to have fun annoying people" was a main reason for its removal.

    Very true, but it made getting green gems feel more like an achievement back then as it was far more difficult whereas these modern times on TSR it seems a bit too easy.
    I like the fact that with someone with a lot of green gems would immediately gain my respect
    But what if they weren't worth your respect, what if they were just towing the line with banal little party pleasing lines?

    I mean back in 2012 just to prove a point regarding Rep, I pretended to be an Atheist and super-left and made tons of really aggresive anti-religious posts and ran about like a crazy lib-tard and went from 1 Green to 6 in a week and a half.

    +/- Rep was always primarily a circle jerk

    It's not back. There were just some site issues last night and apparently this was a consequence..

    If OP comes to AAM we could sort it.

    You have a very good point, i guess i figured since they were well respected within the TSR community then they were worth my respect as well.

    I think a lot of us did to be fair.

    I think the best example of it's unfairness came in the Religion section especially amongst the Muslim community.

    Back in those days just stating "Yes I am Muslim" was enough to get you neg-repped into oblivion by the 5-8 Gem Atheists.
    It got a bit discriminatory, even Muslims who espoused no objectionable views were just negged for following there faith.
