    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.

    the whole system is corrupted. this weekend alone i got almost 8 negatives from people thinking it was a funny joke to leave them. and get this, they were so cool, they didnt even sign them, just left profane remarks.

    Here’s a thought…

    Lets assume that you’re 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 “auras of light”? Can you imagine a couple of superior court judges bickering over points? Doesn’t seem to fit, does it.

    And, as ironic as it may seem, but maybe it’s 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.

    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 :cool2:
