Grin and bear it
For real, this rep is out of hand. You guys wanted it, and now you guys have it. David is probably sick of taking care of all your guys rep.
We should have anticipated that it would be used out of bounds like it is now, however, we didnt, so we need to deal with that. We shouldnt make David take care of something that doesnt matter in the first place.
Rep is a nice little feature, it doesnt mean anything - how could it? With people getting reps for having a niec computer, making a joke, or funny post (what its usually being used for) and then the occassional point when you do help someone.
As of now, there are some people going around giving neg reps to everyone, [like i said we should have anticipated it!]. But then there is the flip side to the positive rep (root said this) where you disagree when you are given a neg rep.
But the rep (as X1337) said does not help you sell items in the for sale forum. Its the way you act, speak, and present yourself. Rep doesnt do anyone any good. Like I said its ONLY a little green bar, what does it represent? Mine personally represents a cool dog, a nice picture, being a nice guy, making a job (a neg rep for no reason  and a neg rep for editing someones thread (from wombat, [your not here you prick!]. See, my rep is really random, and doesnt mean anyone. Im always on, so I have the highest rank possible at 70 rep points.
So what I say is deal with what we have ourselfs and stop bitching in more threads created. However if you feel something is REALLY undeserved contact david via Pm as he said in a thread.
My .02. And personally, I dont remember if I said this or not, but I dont care about rep. Its cool, but useless.
