Ok first off, IMHO I think the karma thing is kinda silly, although it does serve a purpose. Today I glanced at my karma and some people had given me negative karma for my post reassuring the MCATer's. http://forums.studentdoctor.net/showthread.php?t=116616 Normally I would not have a problem with this, but everyone else had given me very positive feedback on that post. I personally think it is very worthwhile. I have a couple other instances of this, where people have anonomously left me negative feedback for no apparent reason. My question is, is there any way to see who gave us karma? I think the karma ratings have the potential to be a useful tool to determine who on this board is reliable and such. It will only be ruined if people abuse the system. That is all.
