    None because then i think it becomes a badge of honour.

    Also it wouldnt work becayse people would go for he poster rathr than what they say. Upvoting doesnt work either imo.

    It doesnt actually work if you think about it

    1)trolls/trouble makers want attention

    2)downvoting them makes them have REALLY low rep

    3)having REALLY low rep is unique and attracts attention albeit wrong

    4)they get attention

    Is it not?

    1)TSR wants to get rid of trolls/attention seekers agree?

    2) trolls and attention seekers want attention, having a 'unique form of rep' known as neg rep to be implemented will allow them to earn neg rep instead of the usual rep instead

    3)hence they will keep being trolls/attention seekers

    ah just realised I didnt answer OP, very sry

    Dont think it would have the slightest effect on him. He would love the attention tbh, all he can get.

    tbh those of us who came up the hard way to the top have that extra confidence which comes with knowing that your rewards are richly deserved.

    I'd genuinely be on my way to 12 gems if I hadn't gone through a year of being negged and having all the reps I got cancelled out by downvotes :lol:
