    ...is sad.

    I was really hoping it was a fucking joke or you guys had come to your senses before you pissed away 8 years of WF tradition in the name of equality and appeasement.

    Hey, here's a thought.

    If negs are meaningless so we can keep some people here from crying, why the hell would we limit them to only 10 a day?

    You guys didn't really think this through, did you?

    Well, since the change is apparently still happening, I may as well turn my rep back on.


    Wow, look at all those green pips! I sure am popular, as indicated by this arbitrary number! :shock:

    No, no, Nancy from "A Nightmare On Elm Street", was a resourceful courageous heroic figure, I don't associate those traits with Sokar in any way, shape, or form.

    Negreps are worth 0 points. All 0-valued rep, past and present, displays as "disagrees".

    Huh, what do you know, there is actually a use for this new system... [-]Those who implemented it[/-] everyone can be assholes with impunity. Hey Face: go fuck yourself! And skinofevil, you really are a waste of skin.

    I mock your pathetic and impotent attempts to negrep me!

    Yeah, that's the part we're having technical difficulties with, but Lanz told me to go ahead and implement the rest.

    While I was leaning toward the "leave it alone" side of the discussion, Sokar's meltdown should be fun to watch.

    The alternative is I get fired and the board breaks and there's no one to fix it. But mostly I don't want to lose my "longest continuously serving staff member" title. I like that title more than negrep as a method of enforcing civilized discourse.

    Unfortunately for you.

    Fucktard. :D :finger:

    "Immortal" refers to my position on staff. Also part of the translation from the Italian tagline for The Highlander.
