Should "Member's Reputation Points" be Removed?
I don't understand the purpose for the Member's Reputation points under their profile. I just noticed that my red score kept rising. I finally clicked on it to find it was a popularity contest. It scored how many times someone clicked negatively on your comments. Buxr asks you to comment on your vote. Your reason is your honest opinion & you shouldn't be down voted for 1st being asked for it, then giving it. This is totally unfair. Powerusers down vote newcomers' comments to maintain their high scores for the monthly contests. That makes this website like a high school click. A popularity contest that make some members threaten & verbally abuse othersto keep their status. What are we encouraging by having a "Member's Reputation Points" score?
