"Trust points" is something that seems self-contradicting to me. Trust

Yes they can. In fact, this is pretty much what nowadays 'social
network' sites use to give some 'ranking'. It's an elaborate 'web of
trust', where people declare some form of confidence in their peers.
(What precisely that is supposed to measure is dependent on the specific
web in question.) Lots of research has gone into the question of how to
make such networks safe against intruders.
