    I hear TSR got rid of it because they discovered new users who ended up in neg rep often stopped posting and left the site.............
    Does that story have the ring of authenticity about it?

    ... why?

    Because I'm going to be so upset that someone disagrees or doesn't like my post.
    People can still say things to others anyways...
    Who knows - this is all before my time.

    None of the rationales presented make any particular sense though.

    Rep is the most important thing on TSR, if you don't have rep and thus, don't have those beautiful gems...you are just a commoner who is walking through our territory :smug::scrooge:

    That's what the CT said- it caused bullying

    You don’t think that’s really very circular an argument?

    It’s true because the CT said it is?

    Ok I admit that it’s very difficult to read old threads because you don’t have a feel for what’s happening except for the one you’re reading- but if you have a skim over them it looks a lot more like people asked for any actual evidence of what the CT claimed and it was never forthcoming/a variety of different reasons were presented.

    Personally I really don’t see what difference it makes and it’s not a system I’ve ever experienced (here)- but on many other fora I use this “bullying” isn’t a problem either because there is no evidence that it exists - or (like on reddit) no one gives a hoot that they’re downvoted.
