    I neg rep if someone is:

    (a) being generally ridiculous - last case example being someone who was in the finance forum telling people it was illegal to give financial advice.

    (b) giving out incorrect information as fact, when it could influence someone.

    I've never neg repped anyone. Even when people neg rep me (and I think they're being unfair), because I'd feel too guilty if I neg repped people (even though my neg rep is basically nothing, I think the act of neg repping is hurtful coupled with a negative comment, e.g. idiot).

    I know I'm pathetic

    p.s. I know what you're thinking, I'm one to talk given the fact I've got warning points. I actually got them for posting a motivational poster with jedi squirrels which happened to contain some swear words. I know I shouldn't have posted it, but it was so funny, lol.

    I've only done it a couple of times, and that's been when the person is just being an absolute fool.

    In addition to what I chose in the poll, I neg rep if someone is being deliberately inflammatory, misleading, or a ****. Particularly to a newer member.

    I'm a bitter, sick and twisted soul who hates humanity.... :holmes:

    But seriously... I've only negged three or four times and usually when the poster was being an absolute idiot or just wound me up and I attacked them with intenet wrath.

    You could have posted them both in one thread. I neg rep somebody who has a good number of gems if they're trolling or generally being annoying in the thread.

    I've never neg repped anyone. Either the person is a troll and there's no point, or I would be doing it because I disagree with them and that's just childish.

    I forgot to neg rep the one person I should have !

    I reported him instead

    He said some odd things to me on every thread we both commented on about meeting up and stuff, complete creep

    So, never neg repped

    He neg repped me for turning him down, shame
