I'm all for CGR adopting anti-rep-manipulation rules, and I will readily admit to launching a scheme or two of my own. However, I'd hate to think that reputation I've given in the past will be cancelled out because some admin decided to place his personal biases about reputation above the community at large.
You take yourself way too seriously...


Get over it. I'd never do something in joking that I won't undo. Besides that, this was never a democracy in the first place.

Oh, and here are some smileys so you know I ain't hatin'...

Haha.....it was all just a joke. Brent is too much of a big teddy bear to actually do that with malicious intent and not give them back to him. He knew that Kori would raise a big stink about it, but in the end, realize it for the joke that it was and forgive, hug and sing kumbuya together.


And yeah...if i remember correctly, YOU sir had a scheme going on in a thread in CPF where you STOLE rep from unsuspecting people who simply viewed the thread you started....

Fair enough. Apparently I just missed the joke. Following the conversation, it was not clear that had Luke not corrected things they would have have been restored.

And my thread in CPF was a huge abuse, no questions. But, as slap_j would have said : "it's clever." And I'm a big fan of clever hacks.

This is all legit and legal. PM me for more questions. If you sign up through my link and complete an offer, I will give you $10 after I'm given credit for your completion. The blockbuster deal is $10 and you get movies for a month and 4 in-store coupons for movies. So if you cancel before you're billed for the second month you basically are getting free movies sent to you and 4 coupons for free.

I get paid everytime you click this.
