I suppose it boils down to the question of whether the board would be better off, or worse off is the reputation system ceased to be anonymous.

I personally think the positives out weigh the negatives. It is quite clear I'm not alone in thinking that. But it's not going to change so I suppose it'll be a case of continuing to grin and deal with it.

OK, firstly it should be abolished.

Secondly, if it is to exist unabused (although this board has proven itself incapable of that feat) then NO ONE should know who repped them. Not positive rep, not negative rep, not by PM, not over MSN.

It is meant to measure contributions, genuine helpfulness, whatever, not horse trading or petty vendettas.

I know exactly what you mean. I always sign my rep be it positive or negative. It frustrates me to see negative rep when I don't know who it is from and it also frustrates me when I get postive rep and there is no comment.

As I have been given negative rep in the past for simply saying something which someone disagreed with, I have to disagree. Anonymous rep is no better than shouting an insult at someone, and then hiding when that person turns around.
you confuse me...surly you've only had 4 neg reps? unless one of the 5 you've had today was negative?

I got neg rep'd for some light hearted comment, the person didn't sign it either. But i worked it out quite easily by looking at the suspects and i know who it is. So be afraid

i think ive only ever neg repped somebody once, i hardly ever give out rep anyway, seems kind of pointless.

so you too have nothing to worry about, its when your getting all red and no green you got to start thinking your doing something wrong. i find that people who dont leave a message with their neg rep are usually just doing it to be nasty.

You are correct in your assumption. People normanlly do that, to neg rep the person, not the posts they make.

I would like to think most UKL members are perspicacious enough to not take reputation/post count into account when judging a member. I certainly am.

Post content is the only guide!

I have noticed my random and ill-informed comments mysteriously carry more weight now than when I was [more of] a newbie.
Possibly because we can remember your previous random and ill-informed comments and it becomes easier to connect the name and the post. If I was a new member and I came to the site today, I wouldn't take extra notice of anything you said just because you had 4000+ posts.

I dont mind anonymous rep I just like to have a comment. I hate it if you get grey and I cant work out if it was meant to be pos or neg. Put a comment people even if its only I hate you or you're a *****. At least then I know where I stand.
