The idea behind it is if someone joins up and starts throwing around insults and upsetting genuine members they can be given - rep by anyone they piss off..
Likewise if someone joins and contributes to the forum they can be rewarded with + rep..
When someone posts something you can easily tell by looking at their rep bar whether they should be taking seriously or not..
Its only an idea and maybe it might complicate things further but it works very well on other forums..
Man is least himself when he talks in his own person. Give him a mask, and he will tell you the truth.
