There are voting rings in Stackoverflow? That’s just sad.
I have a total reputation of 38,000 over the various Stack Exchange sites and I am very proud of it, because it represents real help I provided to real human beings. Faking it in some way would completely defeat the point. It would be like awarding yourself the Nobel Prize: you don’t get any money, and you certainly don’t get any respect. All you have done is highlight the things you don’t deserve.
I once got an package from the English.SE, with a cover letter thanking me for my participation. The letter was deliberately riddled with typos and misspellings, which had been corrected “by hand”. There was also a t-shirt emblazoned with the URL english.stackchange.com, which I thought was taking the “everybody makes misteaks” theme a little too far.
Another t-shirt, with the correct URL, arrived in the mail a week later, accompanied by a sheepish, and carefully proof-read, apology.
