You didn't offend me...honest.... but then I wasn't the indian giver who gifted karma to bluntly take it away.
In fact, I so rarely think about karma anymore, giving or receiving it, that I'd have to hunt down the karma button's location, since it was moved a while back. I guess the reason for that is I saw too many petty reasons for giving it - or not giving it - and in the end it bacame more a thing of bragging rights than a true token of appreciation of a members contribution(s)/value to the site(s).
I know that I got karma for some completely ridiculous reasons - if you could call them reasons - and I felt like it was just a: "Look, I gave you karma, now gimme some back" .
Nah, it wasn't introduced for that... to be like a buddy system favouring the 'in-crowd' and not others., and frankly, if that's the way it is going to be used, I wouldn't care one iota if it was scrapped entirely
Now if only a handful of members would gratuitously and randomly give me shiploads of karma for doing absolutely eff all at all, then maybe I'll reach the grand by week's end... cos being stuck on this 914 for an eternity has me so frustrated I require an extra pill daily to calm me down.
