    Oh, that could very well be. I'm sorry if that's the case. It won't be the first time I've been wrong.

      TRUST
      is a fragile thing.

      Easy to break, Easy to lose
      and one of the hardest things to
      ever get back.

        Why would you boost someone out of contempt?

        Anyway, it's not an either/or matter; one can give negreps for the content of their posts AND contempt for their character.

        If you give out more than a few neg reps a day and follow specific posters around to neg rep them, why do you do this? Don't you find it a bit petty?
        Nope.

          No problem. I'm not saying I haven't criticized him but I consider myself more focused on policy than on the man. I've given him credit when due and criticized him when I feel it's merited.

            If you can find something positive with those three, then I am forced to question your judgement.

              That's exactly my point. Rather than neg rep over and over, I'll positive rep that same person once I find a post I agree with.

              Nope.
              You missed the first part of that question.

I had a few notifications for a rep comment but nothing new was there. Obviously you are neg repping me but I cannot read them since you're on ignore.

                  It all makes sense.

                  Grosnick - get a life, man. You have averaged almost 400 posts a month since you came to TOL. Perhaps you should find a hobby or a good book to read. You're focusing all of this negative energy at people here. It's not good for you.
                  You find a negrep more harmful than what you just posted to Gros? You're either a hypocrite or an idiot. Then again...not an either/or.

                    That sounds just as petty as those your OP complains about.

                        It's a one-shot attempt to make a point. I don't follow him around and neg rep him over and over and over like some lost puppy biting someones ankle. I'm talking about neg repping people into red. It's only a handful of people who do it and it's likely an organized effort.

                        It's childish in my opinion.

                          How is finding common ground with someone petty?

                          Explain that one...

                            And negreps are intended to make a point.

                            You can close the thread now.

                              The point was clear. If you read more carefully I wouldn't need to explain.

                                BTW, I left you red a few posts back. Just to make the point that this is a stupid thread. Like, Meshak-level whiny with an utter lack of self-awareness stupid. You should be embarrassed but apparently lack the capacity.
