Rep is when a member goes above and beyond. They make everything clear in a friendly manner. I think Rep is great thing, because it lets us know who the exseptionally helpful people are, so we may go to them with questions.

i've never given rep "just because someone is my friend". if i did my WI BFF and all my other friends would have so many rep bars that it wouldn't even be funny. i'm not stingy with rep, if you help me, you'll be getting one but i'm not going to give you one just bc you are my friend. while i sincerely value my friendships, i dont "thank" someone for being my friend in real life or in cyber life. reps are thank yous. i show my friends that i appreciate them in other ways.

I don't pay any attention to who is popular or not on here, and I never see any of these popularity contests that are always being talked about.
me either. i always wondered where the popularity contests were. i thought it was just me!

Here's some rep for you" and then the other person will reply "Here's some back at you" or something along those lines. In both cases, neither person deserves it, especially the second who only is given rep points for giving it. I think some people are giving rep to anyone and everyone for anything in hopes of getting some in return. And some people do always give it to the same people every time they make a post and those people do it in return. So, the system is being abused and becoming a popularity contest in some cases.
if it is being "abused", that would be the minority and definitely NOT the majority. again, the ones that i've received and given are not for popularity.
