    Has anyone else noticed that over a half-dozen posters here who post anti-neocon or truth threads all have red (negative) reputations, while all the neocon sheeple are sitting in green? I am surprised to see posters like GJAJ have red, and a few others like Wildo; basically to be reasonable these days will get you negative reputation points from the idiots.

    It's almost as if they got together to try to give negative points to anyone who disagreed with them. Taking a page out of the ole Bush playbook it seems.

    I think it's funny how childish they are. Oh no! someone said something I disagree with! They are also the most vigilant ones with using the star rating function on the threads. Pretty much sums up what theyr'e all about.

    RealFogBelichickBoob: "Obama is a terrorist"

    Anyone with a brain: "Um actually no he isn't"

    RealFogBelichickBoob: "Yeah well I'm going to disapprove of your comment, that'll teach you!!"

    I take pride in my red square.

    I don't pay much attention to them but it's not a little six person circle jerk because once you've given reputation to someone you can't give it to the same person for a fairly lengthy amount of time, either positive or negative.

    It's annoying but most message forums that have some sort of reputation system. It's being abused here. But as BB would say, "It is what it is".

    Maybe send a PM to Ian and see if he can make the system a bit fairer.

    As much as it pisses me off, I now look at it as a red badge of courage..

    What I do not like is that we do not know who voted against us.. at every opportunity I vote against some of the ass clowns of the right, but their color never changes.. so I have to believe it is some concerted effort.. I also try to change some of the people of the left who have other red badges of courage, but have been unsuccessful.. foul play, maybe... but it is a the sign of an archaic system that you cannot see who voted what..

    too funny... i noticed this too, not long ago...

    you gotta love the field in your reputation page of the User CP where it allows the coward a brief pissy comment, without his name so that it's completely unaccountable... that's awesome, you just gotta laugh...

    red badge of courage indeed... i love it...

    RWers are flailing and lost these days, their arguments backed into a corner... some of the most staunchest Bush/War supporters have either disappeared or softened their message... only a handful remain fully vigilant to the cause...

    another new feature i've noticed is that you can now see who's viewing a thread while you're in it... lurkers are no longer safe... :cool:

    There has to be one or two little children running around giving you guys the red squares. Now that I've said that, I'll probably get one but at least the perp(s) will have to continue knowing they have a long way to go before they grow up...a helleva LONG way!:D

    If you/they are reading this, "do you feel lucky punk?...well, do ya?"
    :mad:

    P.S. How do you go about giving members goo/bad marks?

    Its not completely anonymous, the moderators on some versions of vB can see who gives out what. I'm not sure if that's a hack that has to be installed after the fact or if it just has to be activated.

    I'll never understand why one can't just read a particular person's comments and draw one's own conclusions. I know I don't need little squares to tell me what to think of people.

    Yeah, Harry... as the rw's angry little darling here, saying all the things they wanna say, you've garnered the highest rating... it labels you as being "famous soon enough"

    Red means you don't like Bush too much.

    I am proud of my red square affiliation . ;)

    I used to have a red square when NEM was here. Now sure why anyone would care one way or the other.
