You've been pandering for rep points for weeks now. You're obsessed with them. You YIMed me just to find out how to go about getting them.
And then you have the nerve to play dumb and try to pin Cindy as being the one who started all this mess? And you play all indifferent, as if you don't care if Tony scraps the whole system? No way. I don't buy it for a minute.
Like I said, I wouldn't normally sell you out, but I'm not going to stand idly by while you bash a longtime, well-respected poster like Cindy so you don't have to take the heat.
(I'm not saying she's innocent, BTW, just that I don't buy that she's necessarily worthy of being thrown under the bus by you.)

I have to agree with Nuc on this one. If you did it, atleast take it like a man.

I did NOT do any of the the things I am being accused of. I resent being called a liar.
Ive only given rep points for posts I like. As far as I can remember ,Ive always left a comment.
Someone is somehow using my name apparently.
I am deeply hurt by all of this
Thank You Nucelar Dish and Baltimore Bird for trying to defend me.
I am not desperate my aNY means to get free tickets..I have season tickets.
I am very very hurt and upset.

Why not just delete all the rep points that derive from the "Giving free rep points!" thread. It's useless to get upset over such trivial things.

It's not that he sees it as a crime, but Tony wants the rep points to be an accurate gauge of a posters worth. He doesn't want someone's rep to be skewed in any one direction frivolously.

Having rep points at all is just asking for trouble/corruption. Why do we even need that feature?
07-15-2005 12:14 PM #67
I have to agree, though I figure if we're gonna have it, realize that its not entirely accurate sometimes.

I beg to differ...it is bothersome. I put a lot of effort into producing open-minded, respectful, intelligent, original, and thought-provoking posts on this board and I believe my reputation rating reflects that. Artificially inflated reps compromise the integrity of the system and cheapens the effort, time, and thought I put into everything I write.

Are you telling me you did not give Sun 50 rep points in the last two weeks? If you are, then Sun is going to be the main suspect in hacking your account.

I think that's exactly what she's saying, boss. Check out the Rants section.

OK, this is the official "I'm sorry" to Cindy. It appears Sun hacked her account and gave himself a bunch of rep points as well as others. After hearing some stories from other posters about things Sun was doing, the poster has been banned from the site. This poster has been nothing but trouble since the beginning and it's about time we got back to normal around here.
Let's put this whole thing behind us and move on.
Again Cindy, I'm sorry I thought you would do such things but your account was telling me you were. It's amazing what a twerp can do around here.

It's pretty obvious that Sun had hacked Cindy's account since I'll take her word that she did not give Sun 50 rep points in the last two weeks. Who else would?

Well holy crap! That wasn't cool of him at all. Hacking someone's account to just dole out reps...what was his malfunction?

Hopefully it is but we're looking into legal avenues against this guy. He's now hacked our board several times under several usernames so we're now going to go after him legally. It's our last resort, but the idiot costs us time and money to deal with him time and time again and I'm finally fed up.
He either really has a bug up his butt for this place or has serious mental issues to keep finding ways to get back on. It's ashamed but it's part of the price we pay for our success.
