Reputation/Ratings Systems

There's a fair amount of discussion in the blog community regarding the proper design of reputation and ratings systems. Christopher Allen for one warns about how easy it is to do it wrong. Wondir doesn't have a ratings system at this point. But it's certainly something to explore in detail. If anyone feels they have encountered the perfect ratings system (or the least bad) please let me know. I'm mostly concerned with gameability. How to make a sustainable reputation/ratings system that can't be easily gamed and distorted, in our case, by teams of users asking each other questions and answering each other just to drive their points up, etc.
