(Ahh.. Sasha.. We miss you.. why are you not here anymore dammit ?!)

Anders, I'm quite sure that Sasha had worked out schemes-within-schemes
for handling this.

Were you on the list in the earlier 90s? We had a reputation system
on the extropians list that looked like the a Stock exchange. Fascinating
experiment! I saved some of those earlier posts when we had such a thing,
so I copy it below, for you to see, in case you don't know about it.

(I had saved the following, because I just "registered my reputation".)
