    Shrimp Man,

    I my humble opinion, karma is a way of blessing someone if they have posted some information or offered help that you particularly appreciate.

    In addition, when someone has suffered a loss or been in a tough situation, you can offer karma as a comforting agent.

    It really is a measure of the service, given unconditionally, to ypur fellow forum members and threfore is earned.

    I got you shrimp man.

    Is the side effect of bad or negative post, a loss of karma?

    Wrassman gave me some karma once, but mine says 0. Did I lose it somehow? Was I bad? :'(

    just click on the "++ beside the Karma icon of the person you want to give Karma to. Like I just did. I think it will take away from you when you give to someone else.
