We have underused tools already, forum rules and bans, but seems the trolls and rude peoples are exempt from these.

nice idea but the trolls will be the ones removing rep from the decent posters
its already those trolls who abuse the fact that rep can be anonymous, and send nasty ones (as mentioned in another feedback thread)
We used to have neg rep but it spun out of control with people neg repping each other in retaliation etc
'authoritarianistic' - if there is not such word then there should be. :thumbsup:

IMO we don't need to do anything other than report the wind-up-merchants, 'trolls' and rude individuals. If enough members do that, then I feel pretty sure that the mods will take action.

From the code of conduct
Trolling, Trolls:
* Trolls are people who for no reason want to disrupt a forum topic by constantly posting out of context posts, derogatory comments, throwing insults, making personal attacks and deliberately inciting a negative response from other members. This is called trolling; in public forums and won't be tolerated here.
* Users or groups of users who continue to attack other members because of their views and opinions, attempting to beat them down or demean them, will have posts deleted and may be banned

This doesn't include, of course, someone having a different opinion to yours.
Let's keep this in perspective. The sun's shining, France are out of the world cup.
Do we need another way to bully people on the forum?

Rep = Serious Business
It doesn't bother me too much and it isn't vital but perhaps something similar to the thumbs up or thumbs down button on urban dictionary next to each post or username could be something to think about.
No because people can't grasp the concept of a troll. Here you only have to have a difference of opinion or attitude, that makes you a troll, which is of course rediculous.

It would be abused.
We used to have neg rep but it spun out of control with people neg repping each other in retaliation etc

but instead we have rep circles - rep is abused in lots of different ways.......you were thinking of getting rid of rep - how is that coming along....:)
But does it really matter, it means nothing anyway, I think it should be re-enabled, limit it to you can only neg rep once a day if it helps you to sleep better.

Anyway OP you can still negrep, you just get told off for it. Google.

Once a day would make it pointless.
