    I was told that if I kept using negative rep while not posting in threads in the Red Room that my rep privileges would be revoked which of course means board wide.

    Why force someone to post in threads in one of the rooms if they don't want to. It makes no sense to me.

    No one is forcing you to post. In fact, quite the opposite.

    Rep doesn't mean anything so we are told.

    So really no one should be complaining about it nor telling posters that to use rep they have to participate in a particular room.

    Your whole "not posting" thing was ridiculous, and was made even more ridiculous bu the fact that you kept participating in the Red Room by way of neg rep trolling, an activity you've specifically claimed is unfair on many occasions.

    That said, I don't see it as a reason to remove the ability.

    Hey, Dayton, have you ever noticed that you're always causing strife somewhere?
    Ever think of just, I dunno, lightening up, and relaxing?

    Or since he can’t or won’t change maybe the other side should just ignore him. It’s not hard to just scroll right by his posts.

    Everytime you guys respond to him like fools it’s what he wants. Stop playing his game. :shrug:

    I’m going on a hunger strike. As a result, I will only eat, when someone else eats, by taking leftovers from their plate.

    How baba-esque.

    I bet if it were Nova instead of Dayton in this situation, you'd go out of your way to defend her. :jayzus:

    So giving someone rep is the equivalent of stealing food from that someone?

    I was going to "like" this post, but I haven't posted in the Help Desk lately and I don't want to get in trouble. :(

    You were the instigator of this kerfluffel Malarky. Given that could you explain your reasoning?

    Oh sweet Jesus, surely the metaphor was straightforward enough. *sigh*

    No, if someone claims they’re going to abstain from posting in the Red Room, but engages in prolific use of the rep option in said Red Room, then they’re still participating in the Red Room, letting their opinions be known, and the entire exercise is pointless.

    Hence, it’s not a hunger strike if you simply eat the leftover crumbs off of someone else’s plate. You’re still eating and your hunger strike is a vapid, useless, empty gesture.

    No, what Dayton did was to say "I won't enter your living room", then went in anyway with a Harry Potter invisibility cloak, but gave himself away by burping, farting, coughing, and saying "WRONG!", in people's conversations.
    Also, the cloak has a mustard stain we all see floating around.

    Then when people said "I know you're there, Dayton", he just stood still and got real quiet.
    For about a minute.

    What a disappointing response. Would you care to even pretend to justify your latest power trip?

    A statement of fact is not trolling. After all, he has been banned for being a racist.

    Besides, his complaints about Malarky are little more than an attempt to shit stir.

    See the wood for the trees.

    I kept from laughing right up until the moment I envisioned a mustard stain floating around the room. :lol:

    I thought the existence of the Help forum and being told by an administrator to take your disagreement there implied some willingness on their parts to answer you.

    It would probably be of use if they did, but it's their board and they aren't forced to.
