because I rarely actually will post in general hardware, and 90% of my rep is from telling off a certain member.

Who says rep has to come from helping people in the General Hardware/Software section anyway? Where does it say you can't earn rep from telling off a certain member or whatever?

I don't see why people have to kick up such a fuss over something as trivial as green boxes that appear in your postbit. How do you define rep being 'abused'? Nobody ever said rep could only be left for certain things (ex. helping people) and if that were the case, it would have been disabled in the Social Lounge (or everywhere outside the technical and GHS forums) anyway.

Like seriously, what's the big deal?

That's rather sad.

Oh, and forgot to mention... there's no way the Greeks are going to take over the world and there never was any way considering they previously got humped by a bunch of Italians wearing tunics. You can change your sig now.

Why bother staying in Australia if you love Greece so much?
