I can’t help but wonder, just skimming the article, how they measure “reputation”. I’ve been banging my head against this problem for 10+ years, as I’ve attempted to design a censorship-proof decentralized network for journalists to publish without fear of reprisal. Reputation is a capital-H Hard Problem, and any “proprietary” or “patented” method is very suspect, in my mind. All the same, it’s an interesting list (although I absolutely refuse to believe that Ansible is in the top 10, from raw experience alone).

HOT TAKE EDIT: I realize now that they have a whitepaper for their algorithm. Good for them! It’s great to see someone trying to measure reputation in an increasingly reputation-less world online. I just wanted to leave my comment above, because it stands as an indictment of secret reputation systems (like China’s social credit system).
