Thanks for the nice comments, geeks! I'll try to sum this up and get "Today" back to the topic:
My point was, and is, that as long as we have the current rep system, it should not be abused. No rep only to help a friend or to thank for the rep received, etc. IMO rep should only be given if the post in question is original, gives valid advice and helps the OP, or is "rep'able" in other, commonly accepted way.
Back to the topic. Today I'm going to watch another episode of Roast (re: Today 
), to check if my difficulties to understand the type of language used was only because the episode I saw yesterday was all about Joan Rivers, or if this is the grand idea behind the show
