    This is ridiculous! If you want to come onto a forum like this, then you are just going to have to accept the way that things work, and this includes the reputation system.
    People have neg repped you for their own reason - theyare allowed to do thi, and judgiing by the quality of this thread probably right to do so :p: It is in the FAQ that everyone should avoid using text speak, and poor spelling is just irritating.
    As for people with lots of reputation, the vast majority of it comes from people they don't speak toy, it's not just shared around, althoguh obviously this does happen occassionally, just as it does with people with low reputation. And the people with high post counts are almost always the people who have been around for the longest, and so have had much more time to earn their reputation.
    hmm, a lot of rep is due to rep cartels, like in the 'come in if you have a post count under 1000' thread. Mispelling 'too' as 'toy' :eek: after specifically condemning it! By some people's rules that would be worthy of neg rep...
    Im not saying it is, but equally i think the rep system is pretty silly. It has just turned into a bit of a popularity contest. The highest rep people im sure have rep for being helpful as well but i think can think of at least one group who have certainly recieved the vast majority of rep from each other.

    Um, actually, it should have been "to", and I imagine that it was a typographical rather than spelling error. The occasional typo is, I think, permitted.
