I do like the sound of this idea :) I am eager to find out what the rest thinks about it.

Edit: to prevent abuse, I guess we could just lockout such accounts in case the owner was a victim of a downvote brigade.

Unless there is some kind of karma court where they can appeal, I think this could easily be abused to get rid of someone just because a majority of people don't like them.

Another question is what happens to the subverses they run? I could imagine a group of people downvoting someone in order to free up their subverse or something if it were to be freed up.

Sorry to revive a 70+ day old thread but...

What about simply disallowing negative CP? If a troll wants to troll, they will, regardless of points. Many people on reddit troll for the purpose of collecting negative numbers and show them off as a badge of honor. What if you just set the lower range of CP to 0 and prevented negative CP?

I love this idea. Simple and elegant solution.

A lockout makes sense, but it would be nice if the accounts were then (usually) deleted, in case someone else wants to use the username in the future.

Yeah I think a lockout would be a good idea, because then you could investigate if need be.
