Question User Feedback System?

I could see adding a Feedback system for every user on this site. It would help keep some people in check and would give people a reason to be respectful. I have see this on other sites where little squares show the persons personal rating. More or less of a Reputation System. Only problem would be that hd dvd supporters are going to hate the blu-ray supporters and the other way around

This wouldn't work for the reason you mentioned. Having user ratings on a site where people argue and fight regularly (ie: smack down) would just promote "revenge" ratings by disgruntled users trying to ruin the reputation of a person who criticized their format. An anonymous system in which results are only visible to the admins and mods might be feasible though.

You could always turn off the negative/neutral ratings. That way you can only post positive feedback. This gets rid of the negative vibes of bad feedback and revenge ratings. If not, maybe a 'Thanks' button is needed?
