in reply to The meaning of life, the universe and node reputation

The bottom line is that it is a form of social sanction (small as this society may be), and nothing more.

So a flawed system is better than no system at all? I would argue the opposite, but I don't care, and I have to go. There was really no point to this post. Move along now.

    I would argue that all systems of social sanction are flawed, yet I'd rather live in a world with one than without.
