The AI empires are trying to win also.
If one empire, maybe yours, has advantages then they might try to weaken you or view you negatively. If you do any of the numerous actions that lower reputation then most other empires will also view you negatively.
Also, the top faction in a game, or in real life, is often viewed negatively by other factions.
But, it does seem like Distant Worlds might need some adjustments on reputation factors due to various actions.
