    Sexual issues are important to young adults. Why censor it? This is the new millenium not the 1800's?

    Its all about detail. The thread you posted isn't something I'd expect a 14-15yr old to be reading about. Especially given the context and the things that one could take to be implied etc.

    I can understand people who take it personally when you're debating with them - it's not right but then it takes a while for people to distinguish between a person and their views...but neg repping a non-offensive non-contraversial quote is just sad.

    In what circumstances is it used properly, if someone insults you? I just think negative rep should be taken out.

    Thank you...although in both catagories I was nominated for I voted for the person who beat me so I can't really complain

    (still baffled at being nominated for political and academic - I wouldn't describe myself as either :shrug: )

    If someone is offensive or ignorant neg rep should be allowed but not for crap reasons like not liking your argument or just giving it out for the sake of it.

    The system is flawed, I think we're all in agreement on that.

    Hmm, you've got a grey gem too. Who gave that one to you, do ya know? I've noticed that very few people seem brave enough to sign for negative rep. I did the one time I gave it.

    Not sure who it was, but they must have had a high post count as I had a fair few points taken off!
    I don't really care about the number of rep gems I have. Nor do I care about my post count.

    i think if you times the rep points by 100 you get their post count. tends to narrow things down.
