    I don't know about anyone else, but I get the most random neg-rep from people going back, reading old threads they had nothing to do with.

    It's happened to me twice in the last 30 days.

    Is there a way to either:
    1) remove it
    2) put a rep moratorium on threads that haven't had a post in X number of days?

    I'm not going to respond to all the negrep I receive, since no one wants to sign anything to talk about it. They want to remain mysterious, and be a pussy instead of start an actual conversation.


    HERE WE GO:

    Obviously, this is someone who read the thread that went over why creationism shouldn't be in school.

    I defended it, because it doesn't fucking matter. I'm a Moderate Atheist that doesn't get his panties in a bunch over little things that other super liberal Atheists tend to. The STATE itself wasn't ordering these books, the ISDs were. The state sets a goal for the lesson plan, that even then is created more at the ISD level than the state. No one is trying to shove anything down anyone's throats. Clearly, if you had been taught here, or actually read what people said that actually lived in the area went through.

    But no. Instead it's easier to be an armchair intellectual and make a one off retort, that isn't signed so that I can't explain myself. I don't give a shit if your opinion differs from mine, I expect it. But don't be a fucking pussy, and not let me defend myself.

    Clearly another Armchair Intellectual, must be someone who's only ever gotten +rep because he's so loved.

    You sound like a pompous faggot.

    So I guess we're even.

    Maybe you should just stop looking at your rep; works for me.

    Oh, I don't actually care about the rep itself. I just want the ability to defend myself, or have an actual conversation with someone if they disagree with me. It's about courtesy and civility. Which most of the people don't know about, apparently, which is why I respond the way I do.

    :tup:

    Don't call me a donkey, and faggot is an insult, and I'll use it if I see fit.

    Would you throw racial slurs around like that? I'm willing to bet you wouldn't. Don't throw gay-slurs around either.

    It's the internet, this is of a greater level of srs bsns than real life, Razzy.

    Grazie, grazie!

    Can it really be a gay slur if it isn't being used that way nor towards a gay person? :scratch:

    Traditionally that's what it is, and he's using it towards anonymous users who might be gay. I know that I wasn't thrilled with seeing it bandied about with such angry intensity.

    Maybe I'm being a little sensitive, but I have a feeling if he had used "the n-word" instead, we wouldn't be having this discussion.

    Like I told flint. I keep the 'er for BF3 servers.

    all my friends be my 'as.

    now shush up, you're making my thread even more of a mockery. (btw, I ain't even mad.)

    Honestly the fact that these words (all of them) are demonized give them more power IMO. But hey I guess I can see why some get offended. :shrug:

    Indeed very off topic. :lol:

    It's the internet. At the end of the day, I really don't give a shit what you think, and you feel the same about me. We're all just flexing our nuts for generally no reason. I've never made a major ideological change because of some debate on the web, and probably won't.

    Turn your rep off.
