Note sure where could I ask this... I would've expected reputation to roughly adhere to power law but instead I see very odd clustering where a pair of people have identical or near identical reputation:
Was there any research made into the reputation distribution and the potential reasons behind such?
Edit for the downvoters: perhaps I should've posted to math SE? Could you provide a better place to ask?
Edit2: yes, M.SE reputation distribution is a (partial) answer to it.
