Not that I really care all that much, but I'd keep 'em. They're amusing .

As for those who get all upset about getting negative hits: One way around that is for you narcissists to stop looking at your own profile all the damn time .

Ain't that the truth!
Like how the hell did the Dog get his rep points?
Doesn't it make you wonder?

I still like them and voted to keep things the same.
Looks like we are out numbered.

It's not impossible, it just costs more.
Give me ambiguity, or give me something else.

I didn't understand the use of rep points/power until recently so I didn't pay any attention to it. There is enough information shared in each thread, some opinions, some facts that the open 'forum' format lets the reader make up their own mind. A good example is the Solar Schtick adventure. While it digressed frequently there was a tremendous amount of information, formulae, electrical theory, physics and outright opinion that ultimately allowed us to sort the fact from the fiction and the folklore and make more informed decisions. I have a lifetime of experience in electrical matters including in depth training in the US Navy but technology marches on and while the laws of physics remain essentially the same our application of them advances and I learned a few things from that thread content not from the rep points/power ratings. Keep or loose them I don't use them. I'll go vote to eliminate them.

Cosmos,

Dog just types really fast. He's replaced his key board many times.
