    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.
    As noted, the plug-in Boss mentioned only would allow positive feedback. And no one ever had their opinion influenced by a reputation rating before, so I don't see why it would start now.

    What it would accomplish is giving the community the ability to once again identify quality (the lack of which has been the main complaint I've heard from many long-time board members, a fair number of whom no longer post here for that very reason) and set some standards. The ability to "like" a post plays an important role in online communities. It allows the group as a whole to steer the conversation a bit and encourages people after they've made good/well-considered/creative/interesting/amusing posts. The board needs more good stuff and less skull-pounding inanity.
