No - it's a good analogy. Even better because the REP system often ends up being 'expected', just likes tips are often expected. People need to remember why
they're giving or expecting to receive REP in the same why as people should think about whether or not they really deserve
that tip they expect (and a patron should think about whether a tip is deserved or not based on the service they have received, not just give a straight 20% even if the service was crap).
If people always REP, then people will always expect REP. If people only REP when it's really deserved, then REP would only be expected when it's truly deserved. And that's kinda the point of the system.
