On that other board, negging is anonymous. Here, it's not.
It's very likely that you give somebody a neg here, they are going to slap one back on you. Maybe two...or three.
And then it goes back and forth a and then next thing you know you both hate each other and you both have negative reps.
The admins have had to sort out a number of these neg wars since the sight started, and frankly, it's just silly and feels a little bit like baby sitting.
So.....if I were all of you, I'd only use the neg button if I felt so strongly about something that I was willing to take a hit to my own rep...because that is almost certainly what is going to happen.
And another thing.......I am not going to be the one to try and decide what is a good reason and what isn't a good reason for someone giving a neg......don't send me messages asking me to sort that out.
If the other admins want to wrestle with that.....well you can take up with them. I'm not doing it.
I don't know who here has asked why posters on the AFMB with negative ratings were not punished, but what Peyton is describing is probably the biggest reason that they were not used on AFMB as a way to moderate the board. It's impossible for it to be used properly and makes 1000 times more work for the moderators.
