I'm confused too!!!  Keep it simple for those of us with simple minds.  If the question was Should Repbot stay .... I'd vote no.

I am SO dissappointed.  I congratulated shuggie today for making a very funny poll that no one could answer.  Turns out, he was just making a moronic mistake.  Now, the poll is no longer funny and my opinion of shuggie has fallen (from a very low place already).  Sigh.

VOUCH,

Mookie

All those people voting no, are they really using a voting system?  lol   :)
Do the votes of fibsters that don't come here count:
RepBot says: RepBot's reputation is 214546(GOOD) (no saved)
Does using it count as a vote?
http://repbot.sourceforge.net/stats/
Good thing fibsboard can't be abused like RepBot.
Hey, how about a third option: "stay with modifications"?  Sorry, too many syllables for RepBots' detractors to digest.

I can't understand people who want repbot go.
It's only a feature available at fibs.

Those who want to use it, do.
The other, don't.

So what is the matter to keep it or not.

Sure this bot must stay
And sure people who don't like it, must ignore it.

It's the same thing as people who keep complaining about Fibs and keep playing.

Isn't some king of masochism ?

A system that shows Biggles as the most popular fibster is clearly nonsensical, but as Tomawaky points out, you can use it or ignore it. Incidentally, why aren't some of the other rules enforced? Loads of fibsters quite openly have more than one nick, including me! As dropping also breaks the "be nice" rule, why aren't recidivist droppers like jazzman weeded out? Burper also breaks the "be nice" rule every time he opens his mouth. He could do with removing as well IMO.
Vouch Mookie, while you still can.

Tomahawky, the biggest person who wants RepBot to go is the one person who has to spend a lot of time cleaning up after it.

A yes vote is, "Yes, I want it to stay and I think Patti should keep having to do work to support it."  I don't see a voting option for, "Yes, I think it should stay and I'm willing to write code so that Patti doesn't have to spend as much time dealing with its problems."

Since the beginning, RepBot has basically been PopularityBot.

I understand Patti your trouble. And spamming is the worst thing to deal with, cause in final it's spamming we are speaking about.
Why not put a rule in your mailbox which delete all message included "repbot" or an answer which inform the sender that repbot is not part of the things you manage.
Maybe a little time on the mails you receive and you will find the right rules to apply, to avoid most of those spamming.

Is it not so easy ?
Is there any other way where repbot is taking your time ?

Cause as you mention, the point is not to delete repbot but avoiding that you become the Hot-Line .

Yes, there are other ways that RepBot is taking my time.  I have already described the problem in some detail elsewhere.  And RepBot will continue to cause problems for me as long as the abuse loophole is open.

Having carefully read all posts relating to this issue, I am rather puzzled that, even though, burper, webrunner, boomslang, adamosad are offering solutions and hopefully remedies to Patti's pain, she seems reluctant to any form of compromise!

For that reason, I will not vote, as it appears to me that the decision is already made!








PS: Still ain't gonna vote for mookie!  -_-  
That will be shaken, not, stirred!

mrbond, most of the solutions that have been offered actually don't solve the problems that I'm talking about.

I've thought this through a LOT, and I don't believe that there is a way to solve the problem without closing the abuse loophole.  I don't see anyone stepping up to the plate to do that.  It's not a matter of my compromising-- I've been doing that for YEARS.  I've reached a point where I'm no longer willing to clean up after this thing, so it needs to either be fixed or go away.

Someone said that hope dies last.
I hope that:
-this is a bad dream again
-people are good in their depth but afraid to expose that weakness to others
-reading  older posts about this topic on RGB was a horrible nightmare
-I am still alive after reading so much crap
-because I write too much now, my brain will survive the effort
-I won`t shoot at innocents with this post
-I will get a grip with my bare hands on all droppers which are  on fibs only for stirring the sh** up and make them eat it.
-I will be able to admit my addiction to fibs, as a first step taken for freedom
-I really post this one, my identity was stolen, dices are rigged, fibs is a s..t pit, friends are enemies, fibs will die, trust is weakness, ratings are abused, we must all hold grudge for everything, bots are cheating (this list seems to be endless)........ :angry:  

Whining to you, Patti, about abuse/cheating/racism/multiple accounts/droppers/rude language won`t stop. Never. Even after Repbot will be history. The number of complaints e-mailed will decrease,  (this is my oppinion)because the average percent of  idiots online won`t have this extra toy/tool available for abusing fibs/mailboxes.
Droppers will remain a issue, mainly for those who are here for playing and/or trying to have a good time. I hate droppers. I love to win matches! Who doesn`t?  I wait for the first stone, thrown  by anyone that doesn`t love FIBS more than it hates it.
I reckon :hate has more power than love. (but not always). A minor amount (6000+ players on fibs) of exceptions only do strenghten  the above statement.

Pull the plug, humans enjoy online death as well as online sex. :giveflower:  
Helping people is tricky. Give help to anyone and he will remember it only when he is in need again. Since I am not someone who makes history, I help people.
