High rep users are very precious about their "reputation" - so precious that they sometimes avoid downvoting because of the 1 point rep loss.
Nonetheless, they happen across pretty awesome questions, that may need a bit of a boost to get answered, or questions that just need a bit more maintenance love.
Would it be a good idea to give our top users a few free bounties?
(when you place them you lose no rep, with possibly some limitations like question age, not previously bountied, not yours etc.)
If you think this is a good idea, what should be the rep threshold and bounty amounts?
If you think it is a bad idea, why?
Now that we have bounty reasons we can properly track why they act in the way they do.
