You offended no one Bee & no apologies needed -- the karma thing has me a little baffled too -- I guess I'll just keep posting until I get "bad karma"

I have -1 Karma. This is the first post I'm making since this new system started.

Almost every time I post something on this site, I make someone mad, I upset someone, or someone doesn't understand my sarcasm or what I'm saying. I have left this site three times and stopped posting anything for long periods of time, but then I came back and started just posting links to interviews.

I'd like to know: NOW who did I offend? Well, I'm not apologizing anymore.




The way the system works people can give you a thumbs up or thumbs down once each day. Some people will give you a thumbs down based on the material you post if they do not like it, others will give you a thumbs down just because they do not like you and it is not related to anything you posted. Some people have multiple screen names so they come on and give thumb ups or downs to people for the above reasons.

My only suggestion would be if you know that you are being sarcastic, realize that this is something people do not need in their lives and try to relate without doing that. You can be funny without humiliating someone or belittling them. Sometimes people things sarcasm is humor, it is not. I have sarcasm in me also, I've worked hard on not amplifying that. Viciousness (finding someone's weak spot, exploiting it and destroying them) is not a good thing unless of course you work for the govt. in their rendition program, and then it is part of your job.

This is exactly what I've been posting about on other threads and discussing on Facebook. There are other longstanding members who have expressed hurt feelings because they too had negative ratings and not because of something they posted. I am not for this Karma rating system. It's a popularity contest and a way for trolls to take out their revenge. It's not being used for what it was intended which are negative or positive posts. People are being hurt and that's not cool.

Still LMAO!!! Bee - Good for you!!! Thank you for the email. I enjoyed reading it.
I'll write you back when I get home!!! Just keep on doing what you do.

Every time I post anything about karma, my points go down! That's bad karma for
the people giving me bad karma! LOL I just can't take this seriously.
And I can't shut-up either.

Bee, in Buddhism and I think also in Hinduism, where there is reincarnation, "karma" is sort of the cosmic tallying sheet that says that everything you do in this lifetime will affect what your next incarnation is like. So, if you do good in this life, it is good karma, and your next incarnation should be a reward. If you do ill, that makes bad karma, and you may get reincarnated as something unfavorable.

in slang terms, it has come to mean something a little different in the West, basically that whatever you do will come back to you (in THIS lifetime). I too am somewhat puzzled at my karma rating and would appreciate it if anyone whom I have offended would let me know directly.

I'm at -107 an counting...after Dean logs in tonight I should be approaching -130 -135 it depends on how many times he logs in under a different name...I sat and watched it happen over a few nights I listed most of the names I found under the topped karma thread...
