Default Have you ever been contacted via PM and asked not to rep another member?

Have you ever been contacted via PM and asked not to rep another member?

I have, three times by three different individuals. There are reasons why this happens, someone just doesn't like another member, had a conflict with them, believe they have poor manners, or are just not deserving. It's the last one which I don't care about because I don't always rep someone for being exceptionally "deserving" for posting projects or advice and do so for simply being a good forum member who doesn't mess with others. I fail in that regard when I think someone is either a full or part time troll, but I try to resist.

My Buddha side is philosophical about conflicts: Regarding obnoxious posts towards some of us, many times members don't have the needed positive confrontational skills to handle the situation and respond negatively trying to teach someone a "lesson". You can look at it as an act of compassion as they try to chip the sharp corners off of their target to make them better rounded. Some do so by being very rude and come across as being asses, but at their core are giving of themselves to put the effort forward to do so. So, in a funny sort of way, our enemies are our friends when they are right. Being asked not to rep someone can be viewed as trying to get a message across to someone too, but I don't like to listen to those requests, I often see their point, but as I wrote above, my reasons for a plus rep can be very simple, just for being a good guy.

As many members already know, I also have a very non-Buddha side, unfortunately.

Sincerely investigate any of these three short quotes as new concepts and you've taken your first step into a larger world:

"I regard consciousness as fundamental. I regard matter as derivative from consciousness..." - Max Planck. "Everything we call real is made of things that cannot be regarded as real" - Neils Bohr. "What we call physical things and events do not exist independently of subjective experience..." - Deepak Chopra.

Each of these three rabbit holes go deep, ending up in the same place.

Useless troll fighting.

One recent, others not. Considering I have been a member for three years now, that isn't all that much.

I've never been asked not to rep a member before. It is probably best we don't discuss this here to be honest. I think we should move this over to the vet section.

Good news, I probably just rep so much that is the reason, maybe someone who isn't so active repping others isn't worth asking.

It could also be to do with your rep power. You have one of the highest. One rep from you, and you add 45 to their rep power immediately.
I wouldn't worry, just rep who you want.

Default Re: Have you ever been contacted via PM and asked not to rep another member?

I want to hide my reps, but like the high number so I can give more out. Although I see the point of being more selective and only repping posts which have cool stuff in them, or offer help to others, I see that point well. At first I really didn't like the rep system, I guess it really goes back to when I was dumped on by several members all at once which drove me so deep into the red it too many weeks to recover back to zero. There are problems with the inflated numbers now, a newbie can get a relatively high rep, compared to what it took two years ago, that they might appear to be trusted to the point you can buy and sell from them when it's all fluff. In the past it could take a year to get 100 rep points.

Sincerely investigate any of these three short quotes as new concepts and you've taken your first step into a larger world:

"I regard consciousness as fundamental. I regard matter as derivative from consciousness..." - Max Planck. "Everything we call real is made of things that cannot be regarded as real" - Neils Bohr. "What we call physical things and events do not exist independently of subjective experience..." - Deepak Chopra.

Each of these three rabbit holes go deep, ending up in the same place.

Useless troll fighting.

I now see that it also happened to you...
Those were the catalysts that turned the rep system
into a joke... IMO
And now we see inflation....
