Because every second new member is a spammer?

the only new members i have seen with red bars are usually the ones that have been rude to another member.

I think you are mistaken mate, do a search of the member list, by join date
going back from today and you have to go through 5 pages to get to the first member to get a red bar.

Yeah I have to agree most of the new members I see with red bars definitely earned them...If the posts that I have seen by them are the reason for the red bar its definitely warranted... I don't think anyone is giving out neg rep for bad information or asking questions Its due to being rude or spamming...

It's because every second new member is George Monks.

It's all stuff like "computeruser" saying "Hi folks look at this website" and it's a dumbass free forum photocopy of CF.

Nah it's not you, I myself agree. I see some of the newer members getting neg rep for no reason, I've seen a couple, who I can't name off the top of my head who got neg reps and I don't even know why...
