Because it's really worthwhile to make a new account for one vote? Each new account would need to rep 25 different people before they could rep the "main" account again. Seems like a lot of work for little ROI.

The whole "trusted reviewer" scale has already encouraged that behavior about as much as possible, so I doubt there will be much uptick in multiple account creation due to the new rep feature.

So that's why I can't leave you negative reps. Hmph.

if a rude user actually wanted to go through that much work just for more turds, i'd almost say he deserved them.

that would take quite a few hours to make that many accounts.

i guess this works like rating threads?

leaving out negative is really good idea.

also you can't make multiple accounts to increase your total because you need 50 posts to give/receive points.

so it would be a ton of work....hours and hours.

Pretty much like rating threads except you can only give 5 reps per day. So choose wisely
