That's only because have 250 thanks lawls.
I think a moderate one would be:
posts = average amount of the general posters.
thanks = shows that they're not non-contributive / stupid assholes, but then again, sam and son haven't released anything yet they have 300 thanks.
rep = that people look up to them, sam could easily power-level
Banning Sam and Son from this 'idea' would be the best thing.
