Re: Reputation points.
Everybody starts on 10 reputation points - so don't worry if you can't see who donated.
Rep points don't actually do anything - their function is just to allow you to compliment someones post - and save you the trouble of writing 'good post' all the time.
I'll give you all a bump - so hopefully you can see that new rep in your User CP (User Control Panel)
They've been great for a while now, three Super Bowls' worth of great. But only this season have the New England Patriots become The Show, the must-see team of stars, pretty boys and reformed bad boys. Suddenly, the Patriots are not simply great; they're compelling, fascinating, appearing to be almighty and a touch lawless.
The Patriots didn't bother with swagger to start this NFL season; they went straight to defiant. Either you're one of them or you're about to get crushed.
