Why is my reputation falling?
Ouch. I'd like to think that my current lack of XP is due to votebots, but in all likelihood it's because many of my posts suck.
I feel certain that vroom and his cohorts will prevail on this issue, but it really pisses me off that someone would get --'d on the basis of nothing more than their nick. Most of us put alot of thought and effort into our posts, and to get zapped by someone who hasn't even read the post . . . unethical doesn't even begin to describe it.
Hang tough chip. I usually have more votes than I can use, and I'm always looking for someone who can use them. You'll be mine for the next few days.
If things get any worse, I'll have to ask you to stop helping me.
