Either neg or pos rep is supposed to be a reflection of what people think of a post.
Neg reps are whiny. And if people give them to me I'm happy to put the fact that they're crying on the board. Neg reps are a douchebag move, and if people don't want their neg reps posted on the board then they obviously feel somewhat ashamed of them. Otherwise they wouldn't care.
