I guess I'm not seeing what the point of a rep system is supposed to accomplish.
I don't want to speak for anyone else, but my take is that those in favor want a clear, displayable way to separate the wheat from the chaff, so to speak.
I'm not even saying I'm necessarily for that - I'm just providing potential options if
something like this were to be implemented.
