If you were really concerned about inflated reputation the place to attack that is upvoting. If you have upvoted 5 posts a day from the start of the new reputation system you now have at least 2190 reputation. 365 from logging in and 1825 from upvotes. At only 3 upvotes a day you still have 1095 + 365 or 1460 reputation which is well above the average.
For instance there are only 40 people over 2300 rep so 5 upvotes a day plus visiting puts you in the top 45 or so without ever getting an upvote yourself.
