No, because an established player can't maintain neutral standing. All acts are inherently either positive or negative, and once you've got an empire its impossible to remain truly neutral.

New characters are neutral. No, they don't get anything special for being new/neutral, but that seems appropriate.

Also, I really like the built in penalty for switching sides, either having to turn yourself in or loss of commission. Easing that transition would be a mistake. Having a neutral rep should suck.

because it's linear?

you could easily maintain neutral the same way you maintain positive or negative, by repeatedly killing yourself down near zero and then using normal methods. even so, i would rather see the reputation system either completely removed or made meaningful like it was supposed to be.

being a pirate used to mean something, there were big disadvantages to offset their advantages. now it doesn't matter what rep you are, and even in those rare cases where it does, 10 minutes of suiciding outside of sol will have you at w/e rep you wanted anyway.

Maybe neutral things could take you more neutral in any way?
