Please can you do something about the poster Sidneygod , like have him/her banned. I don't think you should allow people to speak like that. (please see the first rep)

OF COURSE it's prohibited when a poster uses the forum as a platform to spread racial insults to people.

However, the difference being between a reputation comment and a public post somewhere around the forum is that only one of the admins can edit reps, investigate and take action against such an this incident.

While you can report a bad post or most other requests to the respective forum moderators where it occured, to global moderators like JazzGirl and me, or to one of the admins, a case dealing with a bad rep comment can be handled only by admins.

Meanwhile, I have informed wtn_amanda about that and I hope she can help you, delete the reps or ban this user from giving out reps to people.

maybe reps should be banned all together if people will have to put up with ignorance like this. Reps are just an excuse to get away with being racist without getting the true repercussions should one have *posted* a racist remark. This shouldn't stand. I think reps should be banned b/c people really just use them to say disgusting things, as if they are objective enough to want to use reps for their true purpose

Sidneygod did this more than once and s/he got banned for it; the same as if this poster had *posted* a racist remark.
