This question was inspired by Korion at this question.

Are you a reputation whore?

Please vote this question up.

Will you do whatever it takes to get reputation points?

Do you wait for new questions to appear so that you can be the first to answer and get yourself a pile of points?

Do you never upvote an answer that has fewer points than yours because you want to keep the competition away?

Do you research the really esoteric questions so that you can give an intellectually impressive answer and score yourself some points?

Please vote this question up.

Do you study the responses of the high-scoring regulars here and try to be like them to rack up points?

Do you always know in your head the number of reputation points you have?

Do you set yourself a quota for points and aim to meet that quote every day?

Are you a reputation whore?

What do you do to be a PaleoHacks winner?!?!

I answered, but then I realized this isn't a real question and may be abusing the points system. Down vote me.

What's better than watching rep points is seeing if you can guess if someone with an ambiguous username is a boy or girl depending upon how they write.

I'm pretty sure all you have to do is insult someone and you'll bounce at least 50 points in one direction.

most of my rep points basically come from 1 answer I wrote calling two paleo(ish) gurus ass***. Unfortunate newcomers who think rep points are correlated with paleo wisdom might get the mistaken impression that I actually know what I'm talking about.

While I think it's fun to up vote people for a snarky, comical, or just flat out good answer, I don't consider their rep points when deciding if I'm going to read what they write or not.

I also randomly up vote new comers who have just 1 point because I feel like it will encourage them to contribute and stay in the community.
