    How to decrease reputation

    Hey. A user decreased my reputation and insulted me in my thread. How would I give him a negative reputation for that?

    Thanks.

    Edit:
    Decrease reputation and not add infraction.

    You don't have the power to give infractions. Report the post and a mod will come across and deal with it.

    Oh. I didn't mean infraction. I meant negative reputation.
    Sorry.

    Don't use retaliation otherwise you will be just as guilty. Report the abuse of the reputation to WA. He can likely reverse that. As for the thread in question report it to the moderator of that forum.

    Heh not likely.... he likens rep unto how celebrities have to deal with the public, you have to take the bad with the good.

    Now Philip added another negative reputation for me because I made this post...
    I really don't deserve this. I'm using these forums a lot, I help a lot of people and I thank the people that help me.

    And 2 negative reputations don't really fit there too much.

    Is there anything I could do?

    Edit: How can I report it to WA? Would I send it to his PMs. (Just want to make sure so I don't spam his inbox.)


    Edit: Here's a link for the post he decreased my reputation for:
    RegExp: Match everything inside /* */
    He has done that because I didn't thank him (With the thanks button) but he didn't help me to solve the problem so I asked him what he thinks I should do.

    Well. If I was wrong in this case I wouldn't complain but it's really hard for me to not say a word about things like that.

    You two were having a tiff and in my opinion you could both use a little decrease in reputation for such a public display of ill manners.

    The adult thing to do would have been to ignore his jab at you-- he would have had nowhere to go and it would have been a non-issue. But instead you quoted his troll post and lit it up.

    The truth is, he was trying to help you and in so doing mend fences (and leave the bad feelings that you two have enjoyed for so long behind), and if you had thanked one of his posts then you two would probably be best friends forever.

    Now if you want to see truly undeserved rep decrease, I have a couple of really good examples for ya



    p.s. I don't think it's possible for one person to leave bad rep twice in such a short period of time.

    Well. I didn't try to lit up the conversation between me and him but I really thought it was unfair of him to humiliate me in my own thread and call me insensitive for not thanking him.

    We've had this discussion before. It's not new. I had in my signature something he didn't like and he then humiliated me with it on every post I had. I didn't act and didn't complain about him since I knew he's doing it only with me and he's not a bad person.
    But after he had decreased my reputation for asking him what he meant. I really needed to check if I truly had deserved it or it was just because he was mad at me for not giving him a thanks point.

    Regarding the thanks point. I didn't have any problem giving him a thanks point but since he complained so much about canvassing thanks points I thought he would understand that he didn't help me though he had made great effort trying to, and thus I shouldn't have given him a thanks points.
    I just thanked him in the thread many times for replying and trying to help me but the 'thanks' button says specifically: "Helpful thread". And his posts weren't helpful.

    That's why I asked him if he thinks he should be thanked.

    The issue has already been solved. Philip has received an infraction and had been sent a PM about this matter.

    So what's the conclusion from all of this?
    If you have any problem with someone's behavior, just talk to him privately instead of accusing in a public thread.
    It would first, prevent any hatred between the two users.
    And second, would most likely solve the issue.

    I think it's ironic that you chastise him for discussing his problems with you in a public thread, yet you created, and continue posting in a thread for all members to see that does basically the same thing.

    Heh. Well, You're somewhat right. Though I didn't intend to actually say anything about him in the thread, I let my anger control my actions and did it anyways.

    For that I can only say that it's my bad and it shouldn't have happened.

    The underlining "issue" that sparked all of this has really been resolved already as far as I'm concerned, so I'm closing this thread to prevent anything more from developing.
