Can someone help me out? I hate that posters can anonymously send rude rep points. I just got one. Can an admin deal with it? Thanks.

You can normally report it to any Moderator by DM, you might tell them what the comment was...

Just report the rep to the local moderator. I usually just send them a Pm.

I recommend forwarding it to a Sr. Mod. They can take a look at all of the reps that the user has left for others and see if there is a pattern.

I find that reporting the comment is the best way. I have done so, citing the comment and the moderators have taken care of it nicely.

I've received several requests via DM to delete rude rep comments and was happy to take care of them immediately.

It might be helpful to inform all that rep comments are NOT anonymous to the mods ,senior staff and admin so don't think for one second you'll get away with posting bad stuff there. Someone will be along shortly to spank your smart butt!!

Unfortunately , too many people do not read the TOS before they start posting. I would like to see a re-direct when sign up to point new members to the TOS and FAQ section of the forum.
