It's NOT THAT SERIOUS
Man, oh man. First of all that lame antipoints crap needs to seriously be dropped, is this not a site about information and the vast free flowing fullness of it. Ever heard of the saying "take the meat through away the bones. " Wow someone posts something that you (administrators/moderators) may not have found informative...who cares! Look past it, but to close it because it was "negged" that was way off deck, come back to Earth, and get off your high horse; with all do respect.

there are plenty of other sites out there, here we have an antipoint system. if you don't like it, cool. but unlike you, it's not going anywhere because of retaliation on this site. it's been here for a very long time. if you need further assistance, check out the FAQ . Very often, posts such as these are only going to get you negged further, so instead, next time, try to boost your rep here by posting something informative, helpful, interesting, etc.
bottomline: if you choose to post at AO, you place yourself at risk for gaining/losing antipoints, sometimes you gain points for things you don't deserve, and sometimes you lose points for things you don't deserve. But seriously, don't come to a huge community like this and start acting like you can tell the admins/mods to "get off their high horse," with 10 posts and less than a month of registration duration under your belt.

Antipoints have been here for a very long time. We dont feel as if we are on some high horse. The point system is a way for the AO community to ban together and get rid of those who are out there to cause problems. Are you one of them? The point system may not be perfect but no one said this is the perfect site. You do have the right to post what you want here, but be reinsured if we as a community dont like what you have to say then you will get Negged. Thats life and you will have to live with it if you plan to stay here at AntiOnline.

Once again its not that serious, antipoints are cool but when they are used in an abusive fashion that is when I have a problem, once again who cares. What is more important actually learning something useful or handing out these stupid anti points. Think about it. I have no problem with the system that is run, but take into consideration, that not everyone was blessed enough to come out of the womb, knowing the entire system, of network security, and with said don't penalize people for that, for in case none have noticed that is the reason, why people come. Too learn. And if a different approach cannot be used such as teaching others, by helping them which enhances the learning reciprocity then that is really a shame. I am not a trouble maker and I am disturbed that I would be percieved as one when I raise the validity of the "point system", I came to learn not to get into petty fights over crap, and one day be philanthropic with what I have learned to help others. Oh and lastly this is the correct forum for site suggestions and I have said my peace. If it not liked, too bad. Nuff said.

Maybe instead of spending so much time complaining about crap, maybe invest that time in learning how to punctuate your sentences.
It would help also if you gave it a quick spell check also, the site has a inbuilt spell checker, maybe use it.

heiress, "learning" something useful, and "antipoints" are not on the same playing field. "Posting" something useful, and "antipoints" are, however. Oh, and btw, if you don't have a problem with the system, why would you post a suggestion for it's change? Honestly, do you really believe that asking people not to abuse their antipoint power is a site suggestion? Seems more like a request of site members. Anyway, just try not to get so worked up next time, and pay attention to semantics
anyway, looks like heiress has learned her/his lesson, particularly with the conclusion of "nuff said," i think this thread should be killed.

Based on er0k's suggestion and the fact that I concur, the thread is now closed.
