There's like 2 or 3 discussions about it now, whether we should edjumacate the newbies about it, whether the system if effective, etc... And now people are using it at times that IMHO they shouldn't be, just because it's on their minds.
Thanks folks for the info. At least I am now better informed:). But on the arguement of whether newbies are informed and "trained" to give reps, looking at the arguements both for and against, I'll still root for newbies getting informed about how the whole thing works. A newbie is not necessarily an ignoramus or a "yahoo" as it pertains tech. but insomuch as he is able to use the suggested solution(s) to his benefit I think he should be able to give rep as a result.
