Default Re: Why?

And once again it goes back to how the members here treat a new person.
If it's a spammer or someone really doing something in violation of the rules, just report it. But it appears to me that some one or several some ones are handing out neg rep to hurt the forum. You guys want new blood, then find out who is doing this and give them a perm ban and I mean put their IP on the server firewall. That way they can't even see the forum let alone get back in.
Also keep in mind some one coming to a forum seeking help is usually freaking out and some times, not always, forgets themselves. That is not grounds for neg rep or being mean to them.

Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. Makes good sense.

I'm going to check at VB to see if there's a way to find out who's doing this.

I agree with the original post,

and it doesn't take long to find an example.

can anyone tell me what the guy in this thread did to get a red rep bar?
http://www.computerforums.org/showth...807#post895807

he's made two posts, none of them spam, all in the correct forums.

yet he's got negative rep.

the original poster is completely correct, negative rep is being given out with no real cause or justification to new people.

Yeah I dunno who negged him or why....but seems like a spammer to me

http://siteownersforums.com/search.php?searchid=1207939

Do a google search and there are a few sites he has posted those exact same posts that he did here....word for word.
^ that site there he posted them 1 month ago and hasn't been back since.
Spam in a can baby.
