Formally 'negative reputation report', occassionally 'bad reputation report', most commonly 'bad rep report' and sometimes 'bad rep rep' is a complaint sent to Microsoft
about another Xbox Live
user. Bad rep reports are usually used as a threat to other Xbox Live users, particularly by sore loser
s and players who think they are leet
and thus bad rep reports are sometimes called 'a noob
's best friend'.
Filing a bad rep report does next to nothing in either the short-term or long-term, and is generally a waste of time to do. However, it does help arrogant
players feel re-assured that they are better than everyone else.
