I'm not vehemently opposed to such ideas if there are legitimate reasons to implement them. And if people decide they want a rep system, I'll go along with. I just don't see what it will accomplish. It just seems more about trying to embarrass people they don't like than anything else.
I understand all that, and I certainly don't disagree. What are your personal thoughts of the "thanks" implementation when someone likes/appreciates a post another makes without any sort of visible counter of the number of "thanks" one has accrued? If I understand your stance, you don't think this is needed, either, right?
