The biggest issues with this sytem is:1: people get negative repped for doing NOTHING. You used Xbox Live as an example, so I'll use my Xbox Live account for my example. I have a small percentage of people who marked me down for "disruptive communication". The problem? I never use my mic. When I do, it's so that when the small children yell obscenities, they aren't broadcast across the entire neighborhood.2: Abuse. Sure, a Ninja may get some negatives on his account, but can't he just have friends say he was awesome? Can't his friends mark "Ignore the ninja comments, they were jealous he won rolls". Sure, it's not really a foolproof way of abusing the system, but it would bring their average score up enough that anyone not digging into comments wouldn't know.There's some in between 1-2 that also count as abuse, such as down ranking for disliking someone, or being pissed and blaming someone else. Often, the person being blamed doesn't deserve it, but a permanent mark is a little harder to get over.

Agreed, ripe for abuse. Given the population of this game, i fail to see how an open-ended rating system would help. Agreed something would be nice, maybe like the ebay thumbs up thumbs down while requiring a certain rating to leave comments. I don't see a system in which all the kids would not totally abuse it, since it relys on the honor system.
