and beat him somehow.'
Last heard, he's cooling off in Burma

Personally, I received some bad karma, and I don't think it will be the last time, as long as I don't keep my big mouth shut. If ppl want to at least look at what I am trying to say, feel free. If they simply think I am wasting their time (as they accused cooler), I don't mind either. Remember, I have my own "freedom of speech" too.

The funniest one I got was bad karma for voicing my personal preferense of different models of strings
"I prefer BG66Sharp over BG66 and micropower.. I have never tried any Ashway strings "superior" to Yonex.. I personally prefer Yonex and Gosen strings.."
Got me a bad karma from someone...
But I'll live with it :-)

To Admin, i like to contribute an idea on this karma dilemma we are currently experiencing. I suggest that, if possible, only positive karma can be given and to disable the 'disapprove' option. This is a positive approach where we award good content/advice while a reader can still gauge how 'good' of a standing a certain poster is without the distortion caused by negative karma as we all know now are often given unobjectively (mud slinging). If a poster is just plain obnoxious, i'm sure admin/mods can see that and/or would receive complaints (pm or postings) from other readers. Your choice of actions for these characters(a warning or total ban) will be fully appreciated and we would never doubt your divine decision
If the negative karma feature in this program can not be disable, then make a house rule or law that only mods and admin can give out neg. karma.
Even god allow bad behaviors (freewill) but only god should able to punish the offender We mortal posters shouldn't be given the power to punish others

Re-visited some old posts, and I think we should really be serious about the "-" karma for now. Even myself back then, try to encourage members NOT to pay too much attention in Karma, as it's just a reference.
However, during one of the most recent debate, poor cooler was picked on regarding his Karma. Not only he received flood of "-" in a span of 24 hours, but also the debating opponents were picking on him, and trying to re-direct others members regarding cooler's karma. The intention is to make whatever cooler's point to be "less trustworthy".
I am not taking on cooler's side with my eyes closed, even if in that debate, seems he's on my side. If you are here long enough, you know cooler does contribute to the community in various ways. Obviously not by providing live scores or putting on videos. I show full respect to the ppl who make the tournament threads to be informative and fun, but I also want to show respect to others, who contribute in other ways.
There are numerous times, cooler and myself are on the opposite sides regarding certain topics, but even after a debate, I still respect him as an older timer and valueable member of BC/BF. I do know Karma does not cost us an arm or leg, but to see a fellow old timer, being picked on, being embarrassed, being humiliated due to the fact certain ppl abuse the system, I still feel hurt.
Be serious about the responsibility, and be friendly. Karma should be a tool to enforce the "good behavior" but not a tool to "label my opponent".

Abuse of negative karma could discourage well-mannered but controversial posts. Polite controversy is healthy!
Positive karma can still be used to reward/recognise/encourage helpful posts.

Negative karma dont affect me but rather it let me gauge what % of posters out there are borderline dementia cases and from which countries as well. I only make suggestion to the karma system because i want to close the loophole in it. U know all engineers like to fix things
