I'll take care of them...next time they piss me off negative rep comin their way!
Am I the only one that uses negrep? My cunning plan has worked!!
Ha,ha Wil, maybe some posters will end up with little red boxes instead .
I have used both neg and positive reps. but sometimes i do want to rep soemone again, but alas I am unable to do until i "spread it around".
I want 3 green boxes. I want 3 green boxes. I want 3 green boxes, acutally i want 4. LOL
Ohhhh.....so YOU'RE the one....
Hmm, might be interesting to compare this reputation-related behavior to this thread: http://www.interfaith.org/forum/jealousy-9770.html .
I have awk and sed, regex and grep, but I don't believe I have negrep on my linux boxes.
What version of negrep do you have and where can I get the tarball and source?
Well, I'm repping a lot of people tonight - seems there's an especially good quality of content and dialogue around the site at present.
If nothing else, I consider repping as like leaving little post-it notes to people, which aren't really worth posting in public because of their brevity, but remain a way for me to simply thank people for individual parts of their contribution.
Just to double check as well - I presume everyone can see who has left rep? I originally set it to anonymous, but a while back set it to show usernames, on the grounds that I think it's more important that private messages to one another not be left anonymous.
I got 3 green boxes!!!!!! yayayayayayayayayayayayayayayayay.
there goes the neighborhood...
lol. you know it!!!!!
Darnit, now I want more rep...
Stupid visual confirmation of acceptance... brings out the worst in people. Kinda...
It is nice to see that your comments mean something to people, and which comments resonate the most, or even which are funny though.
I'll just have to work on keeping myself humble, and content with my humbleness... sigh... lol.
Oh, so that's what green boxes mean. earl
Reminds me of a Chan story. In Buddhism they speak of the 8 worldly winds-forces that cause us to be emotionally pulled this way and that due to self-ego noted in pairs of opposites such as praise and blame. One day a budding Buddhist wrote a poem which went something like this-" I sit serenely on the purple cushion while the 8 worldly winds blow about me" and presented it to his Chan master. The master picked up his pen and wrote fart across the poem to which the student reacted in angry horror. The Chan master chuckled and said that he claimed to be serene in the face of the worldly winds yet one fart and he dashes across the river like a rat. earl
Didn't take them long to become available on eBay then.
Hehehe! That's worth some positive rep!
From The Book of Chuang Tzu (trans. Palmer):
"Someone offered Chuang Tzu a court post. Chuang Tzu answered the messenger, 'Sir, have you ever seen a sacrificial ox? It is decked in fine garments and fed on fresh grass and beans. However, when it is led into the Great Temple, even though it most earnestly might wish to be a simple calf again, it's now impossible."
Heck I think it is sort of natural...
I mean often we get that digital visual confirmation of unacceptance.
ya know the salute one driver uses to the other on the freeway..
Separate names with a comma.
