Everyone has way less than before, except for newbies, who appear to have the same. I remember Ancient Dragon starting a thread requesting a way that he could possibly neg rep someone without placing them in an eternal red zone. Makes sense. Everyone deserves to make a mistake and learn from it without damning them to the Scarlett Red rep forever. Someone on that thread, can't remember who, suggested giving the person the ability of giving negative points UP TO their full rep power (i.e. Ancient Dragon could give -1, -2, -3 points, ..., up to -30 or whatever). I kind of like that idea. Some posts (i.e. racist posts, cross posting for the twelfth time, no code tags for the 25th time, etc.) deserve a real blast and some deserve a fairly minor rebuke.
Anyway, just wondering why the rep power got adjusted for everyone all of a sudden. If it's because people who had a lot of it wanted the ability to rebuke someone without destroying them, that suggestion would solve that.
