My previous personal comment for example Wenda was not aimed at the refs like yours more those that still have it on theirs that do exactly what you did not intend.
I think it is time the rep ref was banned as I think it rather belittling to have it even mentioned.
As Britton said if one thinks someone is worth the rep then surely one would have the common sense to just do it out of purely a choice of theirs to do is and not because they have been reminded that the option is available.
Personally I think a lot of new comers see that message and are sometimes a little over eager to give rep if they have been helped on their first post, not really fully understanding the system.
That of course is not their fault and I am not saying that they should not give rep but maybe more it is down to enthusiasm to be part of this really great forum.
On a final note like Britton said I personally give rep where I don't think it is deserved and definitely not to those who ask for it because I think it demeans that person in a sense but that is just my own personal view on how one should behave or go about ones business.
