    Report it to a mod.

    Things I would like to see changed:
    1) Only so many negitive hits on a particular post
    2) Requirement to put something in the feeback part if giving a negitive rep

    That won't do much. People would just start putting stuff like 'YOUR A L0S3R!!!!1111' then.
    Naturally I didn't feel inspired enough to read all the links for you, since I already slaved away for long hours under a blistering sun pressing the search button after typing four whole words! - Quzah

    Yes but then you can see exactly how childish the person is

    But it still does nothing to stop the issue. Besides, if someone is spamming bad rep, it becomes rather obvious that they're childish.

    I believe their name should be logged with it.

    Their name is logged, its just not reported to you. I know the admins have access to see who gave it. Not sure if the global mods do or not.

    XSquared the main reason I think we should have it is not for the childish ones but for the people who might be upset with a post and just click the link. I think by having to put something there it will make them think for a second of why they want to give a negitive review. It won't stop the arseclowns but I think it would be a better overall improvement.

    Then you run the risk of the person trying to retaliate just because they were an arse and someone called them on it.

    we should have the right to know who decides they want to give you negative rep just for the hell of it.

    And how exactly should we determine who gets to know who gave them positive/negative rep, Xterria?

    how about you just dont pay attention to your reputation on an internet message board and go:

    A. Take over the world
    B. Write a killer game
    C. Get a hot girl
    My Website
