I've noticed today that my reputation on ServerFault corresponds to the number of the beast.

It makes me very unhappy.

enter image description here

I don't have in mind any interesting ServerFault-related question which could receive upvotes (and obviously, with such reputation, I'm damned to receive no upvotes any longer), so would it be appropriate to post a bad question or a bad answer intentionally to receive downvotes?

If not, what else should I do to make this unholy reputation number change?

    Why not just go and downvote a bad answer and not waste everyone here's time ?

Although Journeyman Geek an anonymous voter already solved that, another approach is to add a great answer to one of the 44'000+ unanswered questions (or any other question for that matter).

    Alas, no. If I were petty and vindictive, downvoting would clearly not be what I did. Jun 20, 2016 at 6:18
  • @JourneymanGeek hence the edit and correction from my earlier assumption :)

Someone downvoted you. Now your reputation is 664. Now make sure you do not get exactly 2 reputation points more.

  • And he also needs to hope that nobody downvotes one of his questions and answers, then upvotes another of his questions...
