Re: Remove the rep system?
Scrap the rep. People love getting positive rep, but when they get negative rep they cry, or give the other person negative rep just because they got one.
What difference does it make anyway, a lot of people get and give rep for no reason other than to get it back. There are those who give out reps (neg and +) for good reasons though.
