Anyway, COMMA ON now guys, let's :focus:
What have I started? :getmecoat:
I was sure, but being a self-effacing, restrained sort of person I didn't want to rub anyone's nose in the fact that I know about words....
...and people who want to cause trouble....:)
Thinking about it some more (at least, my brain seems to have been mulling it over subconsciously), wouldn't a split system solve the issue?
Have Knowledge as a reputation facsimile for technical threads, and Reputation as it is, showing your standing in the community. Whether you want to fully split it, so only +Knowledge is available in tech forums, or if you want them to exist side by side, is a matter for further discussion, but it seems like it'd keep everyone happy.
Everyone except the poor bugger that has to write it in, of course :D
