    I show it but it really means nothing to me.When they made BT rep it was for a reason and people use it the totally wrong way.It doesn't help at all imo.

    Hmm this most have something to do with my reply in your invite post...

    pharaoh, SORRY man don't take me wrong, didn't mean anything against you.

    Actually I didn't know you could hide them, so I apologize...

    If people are abusing them, and able to use them wrong then shame on them, but after all when you don't know someone, what ways are there to tell someone is a pretty good member on a forum like this?

    Post Counts
    Karma
    BT Rep
    Etc...

    In short everything adds up and gives users a clearer picture to what is going on, but then seeing the actual posts a member has made, getting to really see the person is of course one of the biggest helps...

    If you're doing the right thing, then I say show them, to let people know you're trying to help, and there is nothing wrong with that.

    There is no reason to hide something, unless someone really has something to hide...

    PEACE

    I don't just because I think it's stupid. A person can have 100 good rep points, but that doesn't mean he's still not going to cheat or trade the account he just got, etc. So the bt rep is useless to me.

    Your logic is like a good employee that gets a good letter of reference because he quit his job and is taking on employment at a new job, the reference doesn't really mean anything either, because sooner or later this new employee, even though they have a good reference and track record doesn't mean they're going to turn out all right either...

    THE actual point here is, in the end, you never really know, so that isn't to say the system is flawed, it's just that at times you never really know what you might be dealing with.

    So don't say the REP is useless, it has value in that it gives people a point of reference to try and work from, and that's about as good as it gets in real life too. When you deal with flawed people you get flawed systems, but don't blame the system, because as people we still need something to work with to try and determine character.

    Don't blame the REP, blame the people, the REP isn't the problem, people are...

    Make sense?

    PEACE
