I never understand the complaints about points - the threshold for posting is pretty low, so even if you were knocked down below that level comment a couple of times and then you'll be back in business. And I hate all of the "it was better back when" crap. I wasn't here for the Haloscan days, but I've been a poster/lurker for a couple of years and this site is hands-down the best source of UM/college sports coverage around. Yeah, sometimes there are some redundant posts and some tired memes, but that's the Internet for you. Brian, Tim, and Tom all produce top-notch news posts on a daily basis, and some of the MGoUsers produce great diaries and timely analysis you can't even find on the pay sites.
So yeah, sucks that the OP was negged and is unhappy with the direction of the site, but creating a post ON THAT SITE to rant about it seems a rather curious method for addressing those feelings.
