In the wake of this question (check the comments). I know there have been questions raised on meta about being more friendly to low reps. But are we too friendly for high reps?
I was wondering what people think about this. In general we do come down hard on people with low reputation. And I think there would have been down votes on this question instead of upvotes if the OP had had a lower rep.
On the other hand it's my believe this is a logical thing. People with a lower rep haven't proven themselves in the community, where as high reps often have a larger amount of respect. So in my opinion it's sensible that we are more forgiving towards high rep users.
What is your opinion?
