Something like post counts or receiving a number of upvotes yourself?
That sort of thing only promotes an inclusive community, where you are more likely to be disregarded due to your lack of posts.
And if the post count / vote counts are exceedingly high like say, 500 to a thousand or something, then it only promotes virtual dick sucking of those people that have special privileges over everyone else.
It happens everywhere that includes people of a higher position mixing with those of a lower.
Just to be clear, i'm only talking in terms of the site here.
