A true rec would be from someone outside the clan with no vested interest in that person's post.
All my rec's have gone to a user posting... not a clan mate. Some of them are my clan mates, many are not.
RN likes to make it seem like my clan rec's each other, but that isn't the case at all. Many of the users in my clan don't even give out many recs.
I do. I give them to anyone at any time. Could be you, could be SJ, bub, RN, BiggDogg, cashtrasher, sjeg, ATY, rwinkle, 14U, Bowmann, Ark, rmack, Suxie, hinestain, huck, EOB, or anyone... I read something good and I rec it. I'd say 80% of the time when I do rec something someone else will rec it shortly after. I rec good reading, or a point well delievered.
I will rec anyone in my clan, if they make a good point. Some of them I just doan't agree with. I give recs where I feel they are due, and I'm happy to say I've gotten my recs for insightful posts like this and for the most part not harsh attacks.
Actually, when I'm mean in a post I expect I might get a rec... but I feel users here at RHP feel these posts don't fit who I am, or I go too far and don't get a rec for being a 'tough guy'.
Anyway, I really think a solution lies in the list of recs more than the removal of recs or who gives who a rec.
