Hallu!

It's my first time to give someone a 'bad' reputation. I just thought it was weird to receive an alert that says "May you receive the same reputation in return."

THAT's something I don't want to happen. Right? :D

This has been reported before, but I can't find the thread at the moment. As I recall (maybe wrongly) that comment is intentional.

Certainly makes you think twice before adding a bad rep point...

Clearly the same message is used for both good and bad rep, which means somebody didn't think very hard about the implications before trying to be all warm and fuzzy to users. ;)

It's the default vBulletin message when either good or bad rep is posted. I kinda thought it was funny/cute and so I decided to keep it.

LOL

Well, it was definitely a shocker. Thanks for the answer, everyone. :D
