Another forum I use has a system where your karma (or rep as it's called in those parts) isn't a direct representation of the amount of + or - others give you, but only goes up or down when a certain net number of other posters (I've no idea what the exact number is) either + or - one post in a single direction. Not something I would generally recommend, as rep-related drama still exists and tends to involve either groups of posters down or up repping all of a single user's posts or single person making many alternate accounts to do the same, though it may work quite nicely over here if the amount of exalts or smites on a single post is around 70% of the number of regular posters (or some other high but otherwise arbitrary percentage) and the majority of the forum avoids using it as a tool for drama.

Did you know if you smite or exalt someone you can not do the opposite to the same person in a different post on the same thread?

I was playing with the shiny new toy, hit smite, decided I liked it better when the person had an even number of exalt/smite, went to hit exalt and it switched my smite to an exalt instead of evening them out. *is just tired enough to be amused by this*

Lithp and Vene really need to have some kind of confusing sexual encounter where Vene spends the entire session lovingly insulting Lithp's technique, then cums on his face, ruffles his hair, says, "You're all right, kid!", and then punches him in the nuts.

I just treat it as an amusing little toy, nothing that really tells me how people view me. If I did I'd go mad trying to figure out what I said that was so bad to earn me so many smites.

Have an exalt on the house for being so awesome.

You can't smite or exalt the same person twice within an hour.
