In my defense, they weren't dead when I left them there.

I attract strange people (not violent or scary, though, so please don't get me wrong!). Just really really odd. Or a little "feral" as my Australian friend puts it. Must be why I like punk/rockabilly guys?
EDIT: I have an artist friend. An ENTP. Affectionate and verbal and slightly unhinged. All of his art is amazing and a little dark, but never threatening. We write each other paper letters back and forth. I told him the story about Pablo Neruda finding a broken toy sheep in a hole in a wall (anyone else know that story?) and replacing it with a marvelous big pine cone for the mysterious childish hand on the other side. For Valentine's Day, Izzy painted me a picture of a happy sheep standing over a lamb chop. It was very sweet and strange. His way of saying he loves me. That's what I mean by "dead mice love tokens".

No, I agree with this, however I believe the timing was coincidental. I have seen some influence from the reputation system, but not a significant amount. I'm rather indifferent, although at this point the influence is more or less gaining speed - so if it stays or not, the influence will remain for some time.
I think I have to reverse my earlier opinion on this. I'm not about to do a huge investigation into this, however I am now of the opinion that there is some causation effect going on that relates the two. I suspect, just by splitting off the types of posts, that those that make infrequent serious posts are not affected, but certain types of more frequent posters are being shifted. Since the normal 80/20 applies (and applies even more so to this board), the shift is more notable and quicker than I thought. I also suspect the break-in also came from the way it was implemented originally - this caused heavy up-front changes that I wouldn't of expected. Now I kind of wish I had stayed at/joined some reputation enabled forums to see how it played out in the long run. It's an awesome social experiment.
