    why are you arguing with me about my subjective opinion on them?

    doesn't matter anyway. it totally backfired.

    thanks for the points, guys.

    I'm not arguing with you, just responding - I sorta presumed that posting your opinion publicly (if a bit vaguely) meant you were up for that sorta thing...?

    Haha, as you say, never mind.

    nah, i know he's not in a serious way. my point is just that we, all of us, differ on what we think of them, and i'm very aware of it, and fine with it, that's all.

    in other words, what i'm saying is that i don't really see them as "reputation" points because what i see as relevant to having a good rep is just different than some others.

    so, i naturally don't take them for what their name suggests they're for.

    they seem more like a mixture of really short PMs and popularity points than anything else.

    Some of my points were planned "pity fucks" and the rest are legitimate kudos. I give them for amusing or well thought out posts and sometimes I use it to send a quick message to another user.

    Yeah, that's how I see them. That's why they're SOOOO important to me.

    Oh, I'd actually kinda agree. But I'd say it's probably half and half, as far as content-based reps go, vs. more of your PM/chit-chatty rep points. This is for both reps I have received, and reps I give. I certainly appreciate the content-based reps more, but hey, I like em all!! :-)

    I think it has some other beneficial effects. I don't think anything negative can come from affirming someone (which I see as quite distinct from 'pitying') or sending a quick note if you like what someone posted.

    Truthfully I only do a few reps a day (if that) so personally I am very particular about when I rep. I don't just do it on a whim.

    i think it's the terminology that causes me to shrug off how many i, personally, may or may not have. that said, i'm also quite aware that everyone has their own version of what constitutes a 'good rep'.

    so, while i think it's cool and sweet when i get them, as it's nice when people take the time, i still take them as little PMs.

    actually, perhaps i'm also explaining to others why they don't have a truckload of points from me.

    IT'S NOT BECAUSE I DON'T THINK YOU'RE A GREAT PERSON!

    I think it has some other beneficial effects. I don't think anything negative can come from affirming someone or sending a quick note if you like what someone posted.
    i never said anything negative came of it. i just said why i don't think about them at all... personally.

    Truthfully I only do a few reps a day (if that) so personally I am very particular about when I rep. I don't just do it on a whim.
    you consider a few a day 'being particular'?

    wow.

    haha. Well, yes. Because there are probably hundreds of posts a day, and so say I read 50 - then a few is particular.

    There are days I don't rep at all. Or days where there are several insightful posts...in which case I'll rep more. So averaging it out...sure, a few a day.
