In an opposite fashion to 'Add rep' functionality, does anyone else think its about time we started to demote some rep ratings on individuals who by general consensus we think are just going a bit too far in their speech/ attitude? Maybe a vote system rather than a straight 'reduce rep' button. Time limited within which to vote, or when 5 votes or similar are counted? Maybe too complex but the principle remains.
There seem to be quite a few wind-up-merchants, 'trolls' and rude individuals on the site (personal interpretation of course) so it seems only fair if someone posts a good deal or does something decent get rep, and those who cause a bit of trouble get voted for a rep deduction. The HUKD members police the system.
Any thoughts or am I just getting too authoritarianistic (if there is such a word)?
