    lol true, but some comments are uncalled for.

    I don't think a wall of shame is a solution. Now you know who give negs in Cosmos so do what you want but I think we are all adults. If you make a wall of shame I think you are not better than those who puts negs point while we say not to do it.

    Flame wars and personal attacks are okay, so long as they stay on topic (although that is difficult to do I suppose in the heat of an argument!), and aren't too personal.

    However, antipoints should be a no-no, expect for those idiots who post loads of spam/nonsense (by that I mean stuff that isn't related to Cosmos, or is just plain stupid). No-one should be penalised for expressing their opinion, no matter how weird/unpopular it may be.

    I must concur with not giving out APs in Cosmos. Espicallaly after I was neged from the individual to whom I gave positive AP's. I disagreed with the individual, but believed that the post was thoughtful nonethless, and deserving of some positive APs. Well that won't happen again.

    I'm starting to like this Wall of Shame concept. Especially for some of the anal-retentive negs people hand out.

    I LOVE COSMOS!!! I don't want it to be invite only. If it is I may stop using AO entirely. I never hand out AP's in CosMos anyway. It is based on opinion. But what about when someone brings some information and posts it on CosMos. Perhaps some sort of recommendation system would work better? Example: one must send in an E-mail asking to assign another some AP's for good info. (This would only be in CosMos of course.) That way people would not give out a punch of negs or positive points since it would not be anonymous and it would be kind of a hassle. That would limit the AP's to a bare minimum but still allow them to exist.

    basically cosmos is just an opinion about whats going on in the world i agree how it gets annoying with negative points but if its not "cosmos material" then they should

    Cosmos: A forum dealing with philosophy, ethics, morals, laws, logical & methematical problems, etc.
    That pretty much covers everything....

    If I wanted to talk about by pet Banded Coral Shrimp it could fall unter "etc." or could turn into an argument on the philisophical or moral implications of keeping reef animals in captivity. Then touch on export laws from ocean areas etc. That what is cool about Cosmos. No one should ever be negged, just the name Cosmos inspires a concept of free speech and open thinking. One can always ignore comments they don't agree with or find offensive.

    For the record: my prize Banded Coral Shrimp is tank raised by a research organization.
