I woild suggest that be applied in both directions - positive and negative.
I'd agree. Once I started getting a lot of rep power, I was hesitant to rep posts, either positive or negative, since you can swing someone so quickly. Someone's first post might get them 400k+ of rep if Angie were to rep them, for instance. Once you hit a certain mark, limiting it to a certain number will help that.
Maybe I just miss the point of rep and karma and all but I think it just gets in the way of everything else and serves as a point of conflict.
Once you've been on the board for awhile you get to recognize the different posters and their styles and attitudes. You form your own opinions of who has good insight, who can make you laugh, and who thinks the sky is falling. I don't think we need a system to try to quantitatively measure that.
I do appreciate the option of opting out which I have done as a precaution of the impending madness
I like it. I gives credence to what people say and do, without the popularity contest or weighted rep. Also, it's kind of cool how it changes easily, because some people go on bad rants for just a day because of their mood (okay I'm talking about myself).
Ok the spelling is different, but hey, it popped into my head.
Jeremy - I kinda like the "controversy" level on the statistics page ... is that gone for good? I take it that was a standard deviation type of calculation? I do like statistics in a really sick way, so maybe I'm just being excessive, but they were nice when they were here.
