Yes, so far the OP's green to red ratio from this thread is about ten to one. Would it really have been redder back in t'old days? I'm not sure.
I complained in the early days, got additional red blobs from DouglesBreakfast & no green.

Copying the system of an other user in an other thread:
The answer to OPs question in the thread title is: Yes.

Now waiting for the next thread, titled "will they?"

I still have not given any out, zero so far. Although I have 1 or 3 fans who keep following me like groupies, giving me neg reps. Maybe I should join the fun and give revenge neg reps back too?
That is why I have chosen to be the green fairy and I help you out there and for many others - (yes, I do like absinthe).

I do give out reds now and then when people have really pissed me off.

LOL one of my worst red reps was from you because asking you to stop downplaying COVID-19's seriousness because it was fairly easy for you, "was a personal insult that made me a very unhappy and miserable person".

I hope we can be friends now and know I was never trying to personally insult you ...

Those who are groaned at and sent red rep, by the same tiny handful, working in unison - don't even bother to retaliate anymore as it is so predictable, infantile and ruins the Forum.
And some people are rarely posting anything here but occasionally do get out of their cave to red blob or insult people they made an obsession for and then crawl back into their hole...hilarious. I think I prefer st2lemans' childish way of "engaging".. At least you know he's generous with both groans and thanks, reds and greens.

It's an English language forum, so we have lots of options.

- have a vote on it once every "generation", although it seems it's elephant generations not human ones

- treat is as advisory, and change the meaning of the vote all the time

- storm the EF offices and demand a recount with only our side included

Or we could do it the Swiss way - have a vote, then the moderators propose a solution which is what they wanted in the first place but vaguely aligned with some of the words from the vote; vote again with an even less clear result; give up and leave it to the moderators anyway.

Well, EF is full of examples on the Swiss/English way:
Clear vote.
The English handling that result.

Just discovered that moderators on VBulletin 5 can lower reputation when giving an infraction. I don't know if moderators here can.

I am sure many mod and admin roles in vB can view and edit reputation.

The standard answer in the context of this thread would be to tell the requester that it is not possible. I support such an answer, after all, the mods here are not employees and not being paid - EB on the other hand, is.
