I'd settle for boring if it eliminated the childish antics. I friggin' feel like I'm back in school as I watch this karma tantrum of his.

The karma meter doesn't mean a thing as it is obviously inherently poorly designed and as you indicated subject to misuse by any number of people, members, owners, global moderators (I think that covers everyone).

Didn't your mother tell you when you were "back in school" that "names" can't hurt you.  The same thing is true here. People will judge you for what you say or don't say, not because some "meter" says you have "x" plus ratings and "y" negative ratings.

Relax, life is short. Have Travis give you a hug. Ask him about that pic above. He probably remembers it from "back in the day".  ;D

I think it would be more interesting if you could see what comment people were reading when they cast a vote.

That would be nice.   I got a 'smite' yesterday.  Guessing it was the comment in my post about the cost of  mounting tires shouldn't effect what I sell them for.  Unless someone's digging thru old posts.

Its kinda useless if I don't know what they didnt like.....

But at the same time, if people knew what comments they were getting smited for they might censor themselves and that's the last thing I want to happen....that's my job.  :D :D :D  Just kidding

No seriously, I think I'm going to 86 Karma...unless you guys prefer to keep it. Put your hand in the air if you want to keep it. Anyone? Anyone? It's believe it's unanimous.

No you didn't do or say anything wrong. MovieMan is arbitrarily smiting the regulars around here out of spite for all the negative karma he's been getting.

There's nothing arbitrary about any of the smiting or smiling anyone here is doing. Anyone who is doing it has their reasons...unfortunately most of those reasons have nothing to do with valuing or de-valuing a post made by any given member. Instead the smites are being used to promote negative feelings about any given member simply out of ....SPITE...rhymes with smite.

The Karma program (do some research) was originally designed to allow for quick responses to a posting in a given thread, but that's not how it has played out on a variety of websites which use it.  I saw one website where a poster could not use it until they had 340 posts. That's not how it is here, and given the number of people who post here it (and the extent to which they post here) it should be obvious that the rating system is being abused, though not every abuser will admit to it.  ;D
