I know exactly what you mean. That feeling of intimidation is what kept me from contributing to Reddit for a long time after I discovered it. I imagine another benefit of this site is that it won't encourage users to make one line puns or joke answers that have nothing to contribute to the discussion. If you take out the basic incentive of posting, you'll only get content and comments from people who actually want to take the time to post for the sake of posting.

    Also the gilding system is a segregation of users.

Could you elaborate? I'm not sure I understand what you mean.

I spent some time on reddit without being aware of karma. It took my trust in the posts and changed my using experience, I soon found myself questioning all content as pure fishing for upvotes. Also the gilding system is a segregation of users.
