Apology accepted. I know how frustrating it can be to receive a neg rep; I've received plenty from people, and yeah, I wish they'd leave their name. But they rarely do. But responding to it would just make things worse. You have a decent rep level, so just continue to keep making decent posts and ultimately it won't matter.
One thing to note is that neg reps give you approximately half the box value, so with four boxes, you'd neg rep someone for 2 points. Sometimes it rounds up, or is a bit higher (so you might do 3 points). That gives you a guess as to who de-reps you.
And yeah, ask a mod to remove it, saying you de-repped in error. I think someone like Nightfall is one of the few that can remove it, so ask them. I'll wait a few days to see.
I have no idea who de-reps me. they always leave out their name. chickens.. but sure i'll ask a mod to derep you... i wish people would have the decentsy to tell them who they are. I didnt say because i figured you'd know
I didn't de-rep you at all; doing so on such an insignificant topic is kinda lame. Though apparently you did hit me, thinking it was me. Next time you might want confirm who de-repped you before you strike out.
As an apology, you might want to ask a mod to remove that neg rep you gave me. it's either that, or I neg rep you for sure (and thus prove I wasn't the one who hit you). Your choice.
