Hmm redirects to a spyware infested site...
Another reason why we need negative props
Nah, I think a Mod pm about the link might suffice. Perhaps he didn't know it, but I'm suspiscious of links that come from posters with one or two posts. I clicked it and what do you know, redirected me to some site and my spyware blocker flagged up about 8 instrusion attempts. Good thing I've got a good security set up, other users who don't might get some nasty crap on their machine.
As for negative props, not sure its a good idea tbh. They have that system on Tito Ortiz's website, basically each fanboy crew reps each other ups, and people just use it to slate people with differing opinions to theirs, or different fighter tastes etc. As a result, people with unconventional or controversial opinions (that frequently turn out to be right) look uncredible since they have so many negative reps. It makes users look bad and just causes a tense atmosphere on the boards as people become afraid to voice their opinion for fear of the stigma of negative rep, or negative props as we would call it. It's just not needed on this site, which is in the main, a mature and friendly site.
