Wouldn't it be nice to have cross-site bounties?

After all, if I am a developer I am likely to have points on SO, and not many on SF, and vice-versa.

I think probably everyone would benefit from such a feature.

Update: I agree that cross-site reputation, privileges or many other things would be bad. Bounties however, are a completely different topic. You "pay" some earned rep to the person that will answer a question that isn't get an answer otherwise. You are skilled in a field, and you need help in another field: that's the founding principle of the entire economic system in general.

Cross-site privileges would mean awarding powers in a field to people who do not have earned it in that filed, and that is bad.

Cross-site bounties means allowing you to sell your milk to buy some meat.

    But it is not, it's a completely different thing. – forget it May 12 '10 at 16:56

    Why would you even need this? Just post a bounty on each site (assuming your question is relevant on both sites). – user102937 May 12 '10 at 16:59
  • @Robert: did you even read? It is not relevant to both sites. I do not have reputation on both sites. You just didn't read at all, or I explained very awfully. – forget it May 12 '10 at 17:02
  • Who's the idiot that upvoted Robert's post after I explained that it is wrong?!?!? @ccornet: thanks, I coudn't find it – forget it May 12 '10 at 17:11
  • @Lo'oris Some people would show their opinion that you are wrong by up voting him, who you said was wrong. – Tyler Carter May 12 '10 at 17:17
  • Some people are just stupid. – forget it May 13 '10 at 8:47
  • BTW it's not my opinion that Robert is wrong. It's a fact. My opinion is that cross-site bounties are useful or not: about that you may agree or not agree. Robert instead said something that just is unrelated to my question, showing plainly that he didn't read or not understand it. Maybe it wasn't his fault, maybe I didn't explain myself carefully enough. But who upvoted him after I explained that he misread me is just a lame retarded that should hang from the ceiling face down. – forget it May 13 '10 at 8:49
  • @Lo'oris: I totally understand the title of the duplicate question, if that's what you meant. – user102937 May 13 '10 at 17:00
  • @Robert: Yes, you did read only the title and not the body, hence you suggested a thing that made no sense if you did read the body. – forget it May 14 '10 at 8:14
  • Sorry @Lo'oris. I reread the body of your question, and it still makes about as much sense as when I first read it. – user102937 May 14 '10 at 21:16
  • You suggest me to use the reputation of the target site, when I explained the whole point of my suggestion was that I did not have reputation on the target site, but I had it on another. – forget it May 14 '10 at 21:28
  • sigh You explained that after I had already made my comment. I think you're confused. – user102937 May 14 '10 at 21:42
  • It was implied anyway, otherwise the whole question would have not made any sense. – forget it May 15 '10 at 10:30
