I think what might potentially be rubbing people the wrong way is the idea of "reputation" points.
Generally, people have either a "good" reputation or a "bad" reputation(especially a touchy thing for women--or maybe I'm old-fashioned).
To have your "reputation" determined and subsequently displayed based on your posts is what may be the issue here.
Perhaps a different word would work better here... ?
