There's been a lot of this going around here lately, and I gotta say, it's incredibly lame. For one, I feel it undermines the reputation system and it's purpose. Clearly when someone is concerned about artificially inflating their stats like this they have a secondary agenda in mind. Do you think that other members can't tell the difference between someone who cheated their way to their stats and someone who earned their stats the right way? C'mon now. I don't know about you, but when I see someone ask for rep in exchange for a free FB like or a Tweet I feel compelled to give them just the opposite. Let's keep the board clean of this crap - if you want to give something away for free that's 100% OK. Just don't make others pump your stats up in exchange, because the credibility you think comes with those stats will mean nothing if they are obtained through those tactics.
