    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.
    You neg people for being too positive(ly repped)? That's not very nice, is it?

    i very rarely neg but if i do it's because the person is presenting false information as fact in a thread where it's important for people to know what they're talking about (ie, about contraception), or if they're being abusive to someone. That's about it.

    oh, and once because someone was excessively harsh to me about rape and even though it's really sad to be affected so much I was really bothered by it.

    No, you don't understand. If somebody has a few greens gems and they deserve it; I'll neg them. If they have 5 red gems, they obviously are a troll or want neg rep so I won't waste it.

    If someone makes an absurdly useless thread just to get praise and attention or if someone's being rude for no reason.
