What is the problem you're trying to solve?
Um, isn't this a request to deal with online harassment?
What is your solution?
Not that this will directly stop harassment, but if a user has accumulated a lot of Positive Reputations Points or Negative Reputation Points it could be useful in adjudicating disputes or simply judging if a user is generally liked or disliked.
