Ok, I just spotted a guy who joined Sept, '04, has made ONE post, and "is on a distinguished road."

I gues I am now convinced this is all a bunch of bs.

Hereís a thoughtÖ

Lets assume that youíre a smart cookie and run a forum on legal matters. Most of your members are made up of paralegals, attorneys, and other people in the legal profession. Do you think that it will improve your website by introducing a reputation point into the system where members can become famous, or ďauras of lightĒ? Can you imagine a couple of superior court judges bickering over points? Doesnít seem to fit, does it.

And, as ironic as it may seem, but maybe itís wrong to compare us to attorneys and other professionals; after all, some people are here just for the entertainment value.

Personally, I feel that until we can elevate ourselves to a professional status, then in the eyes of our clients we will always be viewed as inexperienced and uneducated mower pushers.

I am going to get rid of the rating system on Monday. I have read enough and did not think it would create such a whirlwind of controversy. Unless there is an overwhelming response to keep the feature, it should be gone by the beginning of the week.

Anybody seen Sean, looks like the poll is running 2 to 1 in favor of dumping the point system. Above post was from 10-7-04

This post cost me reputation points by two different members, of course there was no names attached, which appears to be the norm. Figured by repeating the post several people will get positive votes, since the two members that dinged me will have to give reputation to 20 others before they can ding me again
