    I was helping one newer member with a vague question he asked and at one point I said, "Have you jailbroken your device yet?".

    Before I knew it, I had a negative rep saying "Have you jailbroken your a** yet? (not edited).


    I don't care much about rep, but sometimes you get a nice, refreshing message like these.

    EDIT: @ Ezra

    That wasn't a negative rep. So, you're off the hook, if you will.

    It's sad. The reputation system was put in place to reward those who post a thread that stands out, and occasionally, give some negative reputation for malicious posts, rude comments etc. but its people like those who ruin the whole purpose of the system.

    For the most part, unless the user posts their name in the rep description they give, you can't tell who gave you negative reputation in the first place.
