I had an alternative solution:   enabling down voting only to members with sufficient reputation points or longevity. This can mitigate the problem without having to cull any features.

If one needs to build an identity for a while in order to do the drive-bys then it makes it something more difficult to do as, should the surreptitious identity be disabled then a lot of time and effort in creating it is lost. As things stand, I could create an identity and start screwing around in just a few minutes.

Rep points - assuming they're not abused - are a way to keep track of oneself. Are the answers posted any good (assuming they affirmatively accept one)? Or, at least, does the community find the solution to a Q&A good? Even lounge posts can benefit. In this way, I'm comparatively stingy with giving points (or down-voting). Even though their case value is rather low, I don't want to cheapen them or my imaginary perspective on their worth.
