You probably know my opinion by now. I hope this is left on "Just Chat" where it belongs as we should be allowed to vote on something that will basically score our answers. I hope democracy will win out.

You have made a fatal error here. Polls have NEVER had any success on the forum, no matter what the subject or cause nobody participates in polls.

Why can you give karma points in personal messages?

I like a nice Lamb Karma with Sag Bahjee, Chana Mosala and Pilao Rice.

I think because all the bugs are not worked out yet!

Read it, don't agree with it.

Voted and I disagree with these points,
Rosalind Franklin was my first cousin and one my life's main regrets is that I never met this brilliant and beautiful lady.
She discovered the Single DNA Helix in 1953, then it was taken by Wilkins without her knowledge or agreeement.

I can't vote in that because there's not a choice for me that fits.  I do like them, but precisely because they are divisive and open to abuse, which I find greatly amusing  [;D]

Once you get over the fact that they're unimportant, they're fun.

You're right - that's probably the best way to see it.

Lee, I agree fully with what you say. I too had fun with them, messing with peoples scores and just knocking points off them because I could. I just object to them having meaning and worth, and forming some sort of hierarchical structure.

Have a free coupon for a burger next time you are in McDonald's on me.

Well they have gone, all gone. Carolyn, you are priceless so that is why you had a zero. Let this all have been a horrible nightmare and when we wake up let us all have a Bobby Ewing naked in out shower. He was really dishy in the man from Atlantis!!
