It was not because of one person. It was because of multiple people abusing the system. Matt and myself were getting so many complaints about rep it was getting ridiculous.

oh well. thanks to everyone who left me great comments and laughed at my jokes via the rep system.
Tony, you amaze me with the great attitudes that you have about some things! Sorry I can't rep you for that post.....I'm not using dancing bananas! I think your idea is a great one and hopefully the powers that be will figure out a system to recognize the posts and posters that help make this a great place to be. Most people appreciate encouragement for their good contributions.

A lot of people were abusing it. Sending negative rep for no reason or because of some silly little fights. It was for fun and some people forgot that. So, it was removed to stop the some of the problems. Maybe some day it will return.

The one obvious drawback is that the posts are going to be cluttered with "good post"...and "LMAO" instead of having it taken care of in a different format.

Too bad we couldnt have an instant pm button to at least let people know that they are appreciated..or just bring back the old system without being able to add rep points
