    You are not amongst your best friends. You are in an artificial environment that doesn't take its name from the Roman Forum for nothing. There are established ways of acting here. Not only that, but this is not exactly a public space - it was set up and is run by individuals who put a lot of effort into trying to keep it true to their original vision.

    Where I come from, we don't use the term "Bullshit", as it sounds like a crass Americanism. However, if you had written "Well, (whoever), I'm afraid that's bullshit," you might have expected a different reaction than simply writing "Bullshit" got you. I'd still not have been delighted to see that sort of talk here, but I hope you can see the difference.

    I realise that my method of discussion tends to polarise people, but this both in a positive and a negative fashion. Far from everyone who has given me multiple positive reps is a national-socialist, and this in spite of the conflicts I've been involved into during my short time on this forum. I'd say my methods work better than you might think.

    Anyway, I prefer polarising people over not having an impact at all.

    What is a big difference for you is but a tiny nuance for me.

    I think it's a smart and funny idea. Without the ability to leave negative rep or express displeasure it is a little bit like the voting ballot in a dictatorship. If negative rep is too controversial (toughen up, ya sissies!), there could at least be an option to leave neutral rep along with any snide comments.

    Finally someone who makes some sense. Some folks here are too sissy to deal with negative rep. What are ya afraid of, folks, that someone will tell ya their honest opinion? Even with positive rep I get comments like these:
    You finally create a decent thread. Most of your others stink.


    You aren't babies anymore to hide behind mommy's skirt when someone makes some criticism. eyes:

    The problem with negative rep is that it is but rarely used for deserved criticism, which is why so many forums are reluctant to use it.

    That's true. It has always been misused for everything else besides its original purpose.
