Greets all... I just wanted to mention that I appear to be stuck at Positive karma, even after posting some good comments. My guess is that if you post more than a certain number of comments within a certain period of time, the karma system ignores you? Not sure really, but I'm guessing that some of my posts have attracted negative attention.
The bulk of my posts have gone from being 5 to -1 and then up to 5 again, and while this would (in a totally fair and impartial system) result in some balancing out, my recent experience is that negative moderation has a greater effect than positive moderation; that is to say that if you are modded up, it's worth less than if you're modded down.
Does anyone know why?
