I really don't understand why people want so much of something useless (or next to useless).

People want it because it increases your score/points (although marginally), thus increasing your chance of getting a good VPS Smile

It is not of something useless, otherwise people won't spend time doing it. As HR also mentioned, those people took advantage over other hard working members who earn their reputation in legitimate manners with quality posts. So, it is a serious problem and those people should desire a ban here. No question about it.

Thank you everyone once again for your understanding. I see that a lot of you are understanding the problem really well. And a special thanks to those who have brought up suggestions and improvements for the system.

We will be soon taking steps regarding the suggestions made in https://freevps.us/thread-19463.html and see what would be the best to do.

This thread is closed for now as there is nothing to add and this is only a informative announcement about the recent incidents.
