No, the neg rep is usually someone being pissed off or hostile. The whiner is saying " Look what he did to me." That's whining.
Either neg or pos rep is supposed to be a reflection of what people think of a post.
“Experience should teach us to be most on our guard to protect liberty when the Government’s purposes are beneficent. Men born to freedom are naturally alert to repel invasion of their liberty by evil-minded rulers. The greatest dangers to liberty lurk in insidious encroachment by men of zeal, well-meaning but without understanding.” — James Madison
