Those who brag about having more reputation than someone else, well, ask yourself this; is it deserved? Does it have any real world meaning? Are you really that successful and popular in real life? Are your posts complete and utter nonsense or are they meaningful and free of vitriol?
Oh, they are utter nonsense and absolutely FILLED with vitriol.

Meh, I am predicting that out of the 614 rep I have, I have around 200/250 for computer stuff and the rest from the Social.
