Is Karma also earned by giving? Seems that giving might also create Karma in the "real world" although that would generally be because someone knew you were giving them positive "Karma".

No, you don't get it by giving it...it's that 'Random act of kindness" thing. What goes around, comes around ~

If you heat your sweetest posts in a pan, will they "karmelize"?

LOL But I think you got the spelling wrong isn't it 'karmalize'?

I think I am more confused than ever, but I'm just going to give Karma as I can, I suppose!

Rich, that's a true groaner!

Free speech

Ya know, I wouldn't mind just a little more guidance on negative karma.

To me, everyone has a right to post their opinion whether or not I think it agrees with the way I view the topic. There is one Rivet Master in particular though who, I feel, seldom adds anything useful to the subject at hand. Although seldom out of line, even though his posts generally annoy me, it is his right to post what is on his mind.

Then there is another five-riveter who appears to take offense if a dissenting viewpoint is presented. He also dances on the edge of posting a personal attack on some people. I don't much appreciate his footwork, and have seen threads closed due to his perception of what is important. I would have sanctioned him earlier.

If I decide a post is non-productive, it will be reported via the "report bad post" icon, with an appropriate explanation of what I feel is inappropriate. Some of the time the post is deleted. That's fine; I consider most of the Moderators more suited to keeping this an outstanding website than I will ever be. As an experiment, I have let some, in my opinion, out of line posts slide. The posts are still there.

So, what is the Moderators' preference? Report bad posts, or ping the poster with bad karma?

Tom

Well, look at it this way Tom...Karma is your way of giving your opinion on a thread or post without depending on the mods to edit the threads for you.

Right now, every karma hit can make a big difference in someone's power, especially if you have been around for awhile and are active...as things go on over time, it will level off...people agreeing with you will boost a member's karma and people disagreeing will even out your negatives if you are out of line.

Not to say that everybody should karma (or post to) every thread (remember you only get 10 per day)...but keep in mind you do have a say in giving &/or taking away someone else's karma influence based on the distribution of your karma.

Why should the mods have all the fun!

Shari

You can now see who has given you karma from the home page of your User Control Panel (User CP)

Please remember to encourage quality posting. The karma system can be a great way to reward each other for contributing. Try to use the system in a positive way...

I can not seem to find any reference to karma on my User Control Panel.
What am I missing?

Richard ...

I just gave you some Karma. Now go to your CP ... and notice the horizontal blue bar that says ... " Latest Reputation Received."

your points are on the right side of the bar ... the Karma I gave you is listed below.

It seems like the karma system is working pretty smoothly. In a few months we should be stablized and then figure out a way to reward those with good karma...

....and you thought algebra was difficult

I should visit the forum more often. The karma scorekeeping system will probably fulfill the need, at least for the enfranchised, to authenticate the time spent in this internet ether. Or is it the ether we are breathing ?

Unsure of the actual meaning, consulting my Webster Ninth Collegiate Dictionary (Merriam, 1983), I learned that karma, according to eastern religious philosophy, is a force generated by a person's actions and ethical consequences to determine his destiny....now play close attention ....in his next existence.

Holy s**t, and now someone's keeping score. Having been villified previously in this fictitious conference room, how low is low ? Will negative karma become amrak ? Determined that this lifetime is nearly extinguished, I'd like to give it an injection by offering the following opinions:

A) George Bush is a wonderful guy.
B) Michael Jackson is innocent.
C) If we had a cure for cancer, Johnnie Cochran would still be alive.
D) Scott Peterson is misunderstood, only because he failed his boating 101
course.
E) OJ's skill in deception was limited to his running ability.
F) In military history, the invasion of Iraq will always trump
the Brit's attack on the Falklands.
G) Elian Gonzalez was a 'kid left behind'.
H) Terry Schaivo lives.
I) Thor is a wonderful company.
(full disclosure: I am not now, nor ever have been an officer
iin the company or a stockholder).
J) Parishilton is a synonym for "vacancy".

So much for my father's admonition to his three sons, ' never pee against the wind'. Let the amrak flow.
To all of you nice people out there, have a great day. I'm headed for Border's to buy a new dictionary, Walgreen's for Zyprexa refill, and then purgatory.
Dr. C.
