It hasn't escaped my notice that the highest karma scores so far have been awarded to a moderator - investment banker in a previous life perhaps?  ::)

Sounds a bit subjective to me - if it is introduced please include an opt-out facility.
I note your score is zero. I always thought you were more reliable than me and I'm one. If you ask me I should have a minus karma score.

If you answer one of my threads with a good answer I will make sure I will give you a big thumbs up. I tried to give Paul two thumbs up but it seems you are not allowed to appreciate the same persons postings until an hour has elapsed. Paul has done two posts that I have enjoyed tonight but I will have to stay up until 1.30am in order to be allowed to express this.

well from trying to see how the karma works..I find that when you click on the thumbs up Karma that person recieves a good karma for an answer...but if ou try to give same person second karma within the same hour..it does not allow it!

JimBob 

sheesh, I need a life!!

I am honoured beyond any expression of humility by such a gracious statement.

Indeed, I feel that I have been touched buy a queen, and I have -

er, I mean I have been touched by THE Queen. Yeh, That's what I meant (snicker)
Pardon me, your Majesty.

I joined TNS because it seemed quite a grown up forum with no gimmicky things like karma points.

You may jest about our Monarch, Jimbob, but I really have touched the Queen. This time last year she came as patron to a floodlit swan feed at the Wildfowl and Wetland Trust where I work as a volunteer.

She met us all and we were told to take the proffered hand and say 'Your Majesty' while bowing slightly from the waist. When it came to my turn I took her hand, bowed and said 'your Majesty' as instructed. She, for her part, fixed me with that steely look she has and said 'You're well equipped'.
Several ladies have, in the past, said this - only to be disappointed later. She, of course, was referring to the binoculars I was wearing around my neck. ;D

I want to give you some karma points for this, but they are not allowed in chat!

Problem is, what are they supposed to mean? Is a person with more karma points more trusted in the answers they give, or do they just have more forum friends?

I think people who don't use the spell checker may also gain (karma) enemies!
