Default Is the rep system overrated?

I notice posters with alot of green bars think their good posters when they really aren't. I remember I while back when I was mocking posters being sarcastic asking for rep like a hood thug saying "rep me dawg homie yo" (isn't that how "hood" people talk?) and I ended up getting repped. Futher proves that those with green bars are rep whores.

No. It's rated just as it should be as long as you know how the system works.

Lots of green = you could be good or you could also suck but just get reps from team forums. Read the posts to find out!

Lots of red = You definitely suck. You didn't get all the red from unjustified petty down-voting. You deserve it and it's best for people to avoid your posts the moment they see all the red. For the good of humanity, stop sharing your opinions.

Yeah you can have green and still be a shitty poster but if you're red, there's a 99% chance you're a garbage poster

if i have zero rep or neg rep, then yes, the system is overrated and needs to be abolished.


if i have lots of green dots then the world is a beautiful place...... and if i ever catch the asshole who keeps turning the rep system on and off, iím going to send that motherf--ker to the hospital.

i think the best posters theoretically should have close to 0 rep. I don't know how the rep is weighted even if it is, but if you have guy that has perfectly balanced rep he's surely bringing a lot of debate to the forums. A lot of guys with tons of green bars just rep themselves with alts or are just circlejerkers.

If you put any stock into the rep system at all than you're an idiot.

Each post should be judged on reason and logic, not on the color of the bars under an avatar. Only idiot moron retard punk bitches who are scared of the truth will ever dismiss a poster based on rep alone.

I agree with this post.

As I made a good reasoning thread with a unbiased question, I have been negged 5 times. Perfect example of this horrid rep system. Jeff should abolish it.
