We should stop complaining about complaining and complain more about something that should be complained about (ie: Bob Weir singing Terrapin Station....)

repeat info from another post:

stfugreenman you are a perfect example of why the karma system is a failure. You claim to not care about it but repeatedly bring up the fact that your karma rating has been going down. I don't blame you. It sucks to log onto a website for a band that you like and find out that other fans of the band disapprove of you in some way. It can't help but hurt if you are a caring person with real feelings.

The karma system clearly does more harm that good. Perhaps if we could only give "good" karma that would be one thing. But to anonymously smite people who are hear because of a common interest and love for the music of the Grateful Dead does nothing but create hurt feelings and division amongst the band's customer base...which, because of this forum, I am no longer a part of.

So congratulations Furthur on creating a fun and healthy place for your fans to hang out. People are jumping off your forum like rats off a sinking ship. Then again why shouldn't they? You are, after all, just an over-priced no$talgia act sucking money out of fans of another man's talent.

Ok, I'll give this thing a stab..a few random thoughts..

I see the point of the Karma rating, myself...instead of being defensive about it have you considered why it's there?
It's all fine and good to have freedom of speech and to have fun but do you think of others when saying something or are you only interested in your thoughts? I see people say things like, "hey, it's my thought and you have yours so why are you interested in what I think, why are you concerned?"

Well, why did you post something on an internet board if you don't care how it affects others? It's an interactive community and your words do affect others, it's just how it works. A big part of the GD community is built on caring about others while having a good time. Both are possible, and lots of both.

I was having a tough time finding topics I had been a part of until I found the "my topics" feature so that may be another part of it for people that my have a problem with what goes on at times. This is just me, I'm not saying it's for everyone but I try to limit my topics so I don't bury topics started by others, it just seems considerate to me and that is only speaking for myself.

I know it's cool for me to come back to a topic I took part in and see what has gone on since and that's difficult if it's been buried on page 4 and yep, if someone been away a day or two and see 10 topics on the same subject or made by 1 person it
may agitate them to see that their topic died under a pile of stuff.

I'm not talking about anything in particular, just taking another view and trying to understand the whole picture. I'm not invested one way or another. It's curious that some say they don't care about the points but are so bothered by this system..which is it? Does anyone want a point from me or for me to deduct one? I've never done it to this day but it looks like an important issue to some folks.

I know here my Karma stands, I try to help other people, don't get off on finding easy targets like Chaz to ridicule. If that's your game, why play it out on a Furthur board? Are you kind?

You got that I was kidding about the complaints right? That's how things started. it was a play on words. seriously.
Critical thinking..
You take different positions on the same subject, trying to understand it from different viewpoints. I was trying to understand the Karma system, what it's worth may be. Why not? I like to think past my 1st reactions to things.. Are you always right? I'm not and I like to think things out..It was put there for some reason and I noticed people had been upset about. So what happened?

Immediately postings about people on high horses, holier than thou, etc..Fuck man, I wasn't taking a position as my own, I was wondering why people were given so many minus points. Reread my 1st post.

i thought that was ironic, given the person posting this had offered some high horse holier than thou opinions about someones gender issues. Suddenly my Karma points, something I had not given any thought to were being subtracted.

I see that there are a handful of you who want to put my words into a box that works for you but you may want to try to think outside that box, I'm not that easy to read..just look at my complaint joke..some didn't get it. Maybe there are other things you misunderstand as well..

The Furthur people made this board, created the Karma system...it is there for people to make what they want with it..don't blame them if people are getting bent about Karma points..I'm not...

We get it. You are a great wonderful dude in your own eyes and I am a deuchbag for starting a thread about Chaz. Now you don't understand why your karma is being nailed because you were could never say anything wrong. You are all about peace love and understanding. But you don't care about your karma but keep posting about it.
