Lol No. 2 or 3 reps from posters with 6 neons and he's at 4-5 green bars, easily. Nobody reps themselves, that's a myth. no pun intended. It takes too long. You get two reps per day and have to spread rep to 15-20 other posters before you rep the same poster again.
That alt account was registered 3 years ago, so it would have to be a long deliberate process. SPK has good rep if I remember correctly. If he started with good rep, and has say 3-4 sock accounts, he could start out slowly by giving them an extra bar. Once they start building their rep, they exponentially would have more and more rep value. That means eventually he is giving each one of his account about 3-4 extra reps, and each time he does it, they are more impactful. Do you really think that in 40 posts, he got as many bars as he did without self repping? Honestly though, I don't really care. I was just pointing it out. As I mentioned, I like SPK.
