It may have been an alternate account of one of the scammers. Or it may have just been another frustrated member that is sick to death of rep commentary. I have zero clue since I never talked to the guy. Regardless, the thread needed to go - encouraging de-repping for the sake of winning something was pretty low to begin with and of course it was always going to degenerate into some kind of lose-lose commentary.
Nroug7: Hence why he blew it, he was a member for two years before making such a silly topic, I have no idea what encouraged him to do it but people will be people I guess.
Which is why either the negative rep button needs to go - a report button in it's place that is monitored would be a good solution, or rep in it's current incarnation needs to be done away with.
Ultimately one or several people decided to make this forum as unpleasant as possible - hence the gundaa posts (now deleted) in the ninja thread. Hence every post being negatively rated in that thread 50 to 100 to god only knows how far back. Hence negatively rated posts in tons of old giveaways...etc. This is an attack on GOG's business by way of it's forum members...make no mistake about that. It's just as if they mounted DoS attacks but actually sneakier and more insidious...
