    Just the messenger.

    Rep is not some kind of currency (at least it shouldn't be).

    About time too GuyFromChicago - I know a lot of us have become slightly disillusioned with the way the rep system has been devalued by people either rep begging or making it a condition of their sale or freebie. This is a great new rule and I look forward to it being sternly enforced!

    Too bad there wasn't a way Shawn could do a db query and devalue all the rep points given in freebies :)

    Well, many of them (likely most) are legitimately given for the freebies. I guess it's impossible to tell which is which.

    So let me get this right, I have to make a post in the B/S/T saying
    and you will give me Green Rep? :D

    PLEASE NOTE: This is a joke! I have always been sarcastic. ;)

    Great, at long last, rep should be earned and not traded.

    Isn't there already a way to do that? i.e. the "gray" rep that you get in General Chat

    I don't believe that function can be used retroactively.

    I'll probably give infractions for those too. Same thing as asking for it IMO.

    The point isn't to devalue rep given in BST, it's to stop all the "[do something] and I'll give you rep" threads. I've actually downloaded a few things from the freebies section before and given the poster good rep because they deserved it, not because they asked for it.
