I'm worried about this cheapening the content, more than anything. I love hubski the way it is, but I'm afraid that, as it gets bigger, people will start posting easily digestible content that doesn't promote thoughtfulness...which becomes a slippery slope when you add in monetary rewards. I don't want Hubski to become Reddit, and we know how that karma system has promoted frequent low-quality posts for the sake of, "Karma-Whoring." I'm afraid that giving money to users for posting something popular could lead us down that same path.
