    I admit abbreviations are somewhat annoying, but are they really worth negative reputation?

    No reason, I just give rep out randomly, and seeing as that's what this thread is about I may as well rep the person who started it.

    True, but clearly you have been accepted by other TSRians, rather than neg repped and insulted as many appear to be at the moment. I joined a month after you out of boredom, but didn't post once untill May.

    I didn't post till about April...

    Well I did... but once... then forgot this place even existed for two months...

    And I was accepted because I had to work for my rep and I didn't use text speak and when I did I got negged (which made me stop)...

    Basically neg rep helps people see where they are going wrong.

    For example, if Hulachick posts here again and uses text speak then I shall neg her, she will learn, eventually.

    True. I also sub a lot, although I don't see the point now, so close to my holiday. It seems that mods think most of my posts are spam, however. I would be on 3000 posts i think if you counted spam and welcome messages to other noobs.

    Ahh, I see. But wouldn't PM's or warning posts be a nicer way of getting the same effect.
