I was just in my profile and saw that I had two reputations recieved, a green one in this thread with no comment (thanks), and a red on in the track saw thread with the comment "he seems to misrepresent other people's views.". I don't understand this comment, I only represent my own views, I would never try to represent the views of another person. What really gets me is that it does not say who left it, it is totally anonymous, so it seems anyone can add derogatory comments to another's profile. I have no clue how to do this, but really, what is the purpose of this.
Unless there is a popularity contest going one I think this option should not be shown in the first place. I don't see it on any of the multitudes of other forums i take part in.
Some forums don't even show post count either, as it really has no bearing on the experience that person has, nor the quality of the posts they make.
