    To my knowledge this is the only interaction on the board having the option of anonymity.
    There is a potential for abuse of this feature, that comes in the form of malicious rep. For example one may rep a post and leave a nasty comment.
    I have had malicious rep awarded to me by way of repping a failed interest thread from over a year ago, repping an edited post which contained ................ , and other such nonsense.
    In each instance of malicious rep, the comment section was left blank, so no report to the staff could be made.

    This is a loophole for cowards to mess with members whom they have a problem with, and IMHO it needs to be closed.

    On a positive note, having reputation automatically signed would also be valuable to identify whom one should thank via pm, and may serve to spark friendships.

    Malicious rep? How bizarre... I'd never have even considered that.
