The thing about rep vs. thanks is that rep is a built in vBulletin feature, and thanks isn't. I think there's a vbul hack that will allow you to give thanks, but remember, the more hacks/plugins/etc on the site, the more slowly it loads for everyone.
Personally -- I'm not speaking as a mod, here -- I don't see a problem with having the ability to leave negative feedback. I've never actually done it though.
But it seems like the membership here is by and large mature enough to handle it.
Are you kidding? The membership here has by and large ultimately rejected any form of negative rep. People flip out when they get a negative rep, even if the neg rep was "deserved." I do not agree that this membership base is mature enough to handle neg rep. This membership base can't even handle curse words yet. In fact, they can't even handle the astericks that star out curse words. We've got a long way before we are mature enough to handle something like negative feedback.
