why do we have the repping system? to get even???????? someone started a lousy poll (offence #1) aimed at Cypher, and when i said as much and asked others to abstain from voting in it , the thread starter gave me a very flattering rep that went "chal phut (ie. "get lost" in the language of the cow belt of india)" (o # 2)..... for those always wondered what the repping and points system is all about - this may throw a good clue - its t here to get even with people who describe a thread/poll that attacks a fellow igt-er as a lousy poll/thread !!!! wonderful .
