Just for the record, I don't mind PMs, I just rather not have people getting hurt or feeling harassed while not knowing why and for what. The whole rep thing and the resultant PMs I've gotten about it is one of the things that spurred me on to create this topic.
So for the record, PMing me is perfectly fine :) Just laying out this disclaimer so people don't think I don't want to talk to them or something :)
I know that you don't mind PMs, I only mentioned it as part of the chain.
I also asked you a question here
and I'd appreciate a reply - pretty please ;-)

3. Ability for the OP to close/delete
a thread s/he has created
I don't agree with the delete option - one should think before starting a thread or even making a post.
Regarding the rep system and talking about changing it, a compromise could be:
# Retain the +1 rep for the first post of the day instead of post count - it'd shield from the post count being abused, not to mention that high activity (i.e. high post count) doesn't necessarily mean actual contribution, and that goes for new and existing members alike.
# Rating posts either way could stay, anonymous or not, but without impact on user rep, just the specific post being highlighted/ buried.
# Answering Question threads could maybe contribute to user rep, but only that if at all.
Then my reply is: You can only downrep someone once and the same goes for the spam report function AFAIK :)
