It's not theism that prompts neg reps...it's assholery.

That is true, but I see a huge margin that allows this system to be abused.

It's not a system, it's a feature. Abuse? Define it.

RE: Self ban.
There should never be auto-banning here. Ever.

Banning should be a deliberate, considered act. Drinking Beverage


And tying it to Rep is illogical - the two have very little to do with each other.

I do believe the idea is to take rep as a proxy for - as per rule 5 - disruptive behaviour.

And they still have very little to do with each other. People typically get neg rep for being assholes. Being disruptive is a subset of that.

And the way the forum team interprets Rule 5, almost no one is disruptive. So, there's that. Drinking Beverage

True, and the boundary is subjective, one reason among several why it's unworkable.
