    "Balance is the key"

    maybe this isn't a bug, but i've only assigned one positive antipoint and recieved this message?
    "Balance is key!" - Mr. Miyagi in The Karate Kid.

    The AntiPoints System has detected that you've been assigning either too many positive, or too many negative, antipoints lately. Your responsibility, as a member of the AntiOnline Community, is to assign positive AntiPoints to posts that are helpful or informative, and negative AntiPoints to posts that bring down the overall quality of our discussion forums.

    If you've only been assigning positive AntiPoints, it's time that you start letting the trouble makers know that their behavior won't be tolerated! If you've only been assigning negative AntiPoints, it's time that you thank other members of the community for their helpful thoughts and insights!

    Take a look at the "You Tend To Assign:" meter on the left hand side of this page. It will show you in which direction you've been over assigning. Remember, your goal is to get the meter to be as close to dead center as possible.

    If you ignore this message, and continue to be unbalanced in the way you assign AntiPoints, the system will reduce the impact that your assignments have on people.

    Once you've achieved balance (or close to it), this message will go away
    whats up?

    The system just saw "all positive" points given, which triggered it to give you that warning. It's kind of a antipoint abuse trigger that is built in. They don't want you to give all negative and they don't want you to give all postive, so it's telling you to balance out. You wont get banned for giving all positive though.

    2. You are now required to attempt to "balance out" the antipoints that you dish out. Not too many negative assignments, not too many positive assignments. If the system detects that you're "not balanced", you'll receive a notice explaining things on the main site page.
