Like learn the proper usage of their/there/they're, I suppose.
lol damn my comment must of hit home hard eh boy! when i wrote it your name never even crossed my mind but now that i think about it you do spend a very sad amount of time replying to threads with " negged " and not contributing much else. But you're only new maybe you'll grow out of it.
Yes it matters, but not to the point I think it matters to some other people. When I turn off my laptop, rep ceases to be relevant.
However, when I'm online, its nice to know that, on a forum this size, someone took notice of a post I've made. Sometimes I'm having a shitty day and someone, like Frooot, will send me a picture of Pony Swagg through rep. It puts a smile on my face, you know?
By that same token, I can see how it would suck when you come on here and have a bunch of hostile members red rep bombing you. I guess after awhile you could become used to it, but I certainly wouldn't want to come to a place where everyone is hostile towards me. If it ever got to that point I think it'd be time to find a new hobby of relaxation.
People who rep me are like the people I meet in everyday life. If someone compliments me I usually thank them and appreciate the comments but if someone doesn't like me then I don't give a fuck about them and their comments
