Re: Power - Karma

on the few times I have not signed karma(and it hasn't been the red stuff) it has been because I have accidentally hit the enter key before having had a chance to put my name.
I haven't given much red stuff maybe 7 lots in 7 years(two lots recently) but I have never given red stuff without signing it.

Susie, I would respectfully suggest that as a scientist you accept that there are many things that science cannot explain....and also that this forum gives everyone the opportunity to express opinions. Opinions do not constitute fact....they are just someones take on things....much like theories that scientist publish now and again.......and a few months later someone publishes something that contradicts the first theory...but because these are done by scientists they do not attract the 'nutter' name tag.

Oh and I should have said Welcome to the forum Susie. Maybe you could post something in the Introduce Yourself bit of the forum and we can make your welcome more formal.

A person with scientific knowledge is often one of the first to say "I don't know", a conspiratist is someone much like a person newly converted to religion, they will grasp at the tiniest straw of what they consider to be true and will then go on a mission in the hopes of converting others to their ridiculous and unfounded theories.
as you say everyone can express their opinion, which also gives everyone else an equal right to express their contempt that a grown up, so called intelligent person should not only believe such rubbish but also want to spread such guff and expect no criticism.
I join you in welcoming Susie to the site, perhaps we can look forward to some interesting posts that will blow our technophobe out of the water?

Thought that's what I was doing, expressing an opinion just like anyone else. And the word nutter was a throwaway line, off the top of my head, not meant to offend.

As for introducing myself, think it's a bit late for that but thanks for the welcome.
Rule 13: Introduction threads to be kept as such, with only welcome and thank you posts.

If you want to know more about me the thread I started in the Nostalgia section about three weeks ago is a good place to start.

Very well put Less, but think I may be keeping my head below the parapet for the time being after this! Thanks for the welcome by the way.

Sadly not.

Still can't give any karma yet, but will do.

Like a lovely old elephant, I never forget.

Re: Power - Karma

Back to karma.

The first time we lose some, it is confusing, as to why.

If members post, asking about it, people, being generally kind, give you lots of karma back, in recompense.

This only happens the first time, mind.

If people keep chowing about it again, in the future, you're more likely to lose even more.

I'm not confused as to how I lost it and I'm certainly not going to keep going on about it.

Thanks in advance for your contribution by the way.

My post wasn't a slight on you susie, believe me, but older members on here would be quite aware of my thoughts on the matter and the person I refered too

I know.

It was more aimed at others, who'd chipped in to have a little moan.

Carry on.



I'm certainly not going to go down that road.

Thanks all for enlightenment, comments, advice and overnight contributions to my karma account. I might be tempted to misbehave again if I thought it would have the same effect! Only joking, I wouldn't be so crass.

As to the anonymous comment that started all this, rather than Two elderly ladies having a go at each other like a couple of school girls in the playground... I prefert o think of it as Two people with strong minds having a good natured (!?) argument... and I hope Margaret would agree. OK maybe I'm a wimp to get worked up about it but no one's ever called me an elderly lady before and I've never thought of myself in that way.

And finally...in a previous post Garinda you said

Quote:
The longer you are here, the easier it is to work out who gave you unsigned karma.

The amount given/deducted relates to a member's reputation power.

I always know how to work out who gave me some, plus there's another fail safe way of finding out.

How does reputation power relate to karma? Is there an idiot's guide to all this? You see I'm a scientist, I like to find things out.

Think I'll stick to the nostalgia threads in future, it's safer.

Thanks again all.
