You guys put way too much stock in karma points. It makes the entire exercise on this site a popularity contest. And creates class divides. I formally request my karma points be adjusted to zero please.

The whole thing is silly


Ya know, I seldom agree with you on anything, but I totally agree on this! It’s absolutely ridiculous, and it’s just a damn popularity contest. And cliques.

...I could do a Culture Club karaoke double shot. Now I don’t have the vocal range for it, but that makes it all the better, really...Just ask Zazz. Jack laughed the hardest though because he knew what I had started to sing from the opening lines. Only did half the first chorus though. And fortunately Johnny was either absent or caught off guard because I know he would have auto tuned it...or audio de-tuned Boy George to cover me.

Sometimes, people don’t miss those radio shows at all. Come to think of it...


Give me time to realize my crime
Let me love and steal
I have danced inside your eyes
How can I be real

Do you really want to hurt me
Do you really want to make me cry

Precious kisses words that burn me
Lovers never ask you why
In my heart the fire is burning
Choose my color find a star
Precious people always tell me
That's a step a step too far

Do you really want to hurt me
Do you really want to make me cry
Do you really want to hurt me
Do you really want to make me cry

Words are few I have spoken
I could waste a thousand years
Wrapped in sorrow, words are token
Come inside and catch my tears
You've been talking but believe me
If it's true you do not know
This boy loves without a reason
I'm prepared to let you go
If it's love you want from me
Then take it away…


Followed up by Karma Chameleon naturally.

There's a loving in your eyes all the way
If I listen to your lies, would you say
I'm a man without conviction
I'm a man who doesn't know
How to sell a contradiction
You come and go, you come and go

Karma, karma, karma, karma, karma chameleon
You come and go, you come and go
Loving would be easy if your colors were like my dreams
Red, gold, and green, red, gold, and green

Didn't you hear your wicked words every day
And you used to be so sweet, I heard you say
That my love was an addiction
When we cling, our love is strong
When you go, you're gone forever
You string along, you string along

Karma, karma, karma, karma, karma chameleon
You come and go, you come and go
Loving would be easy if your colors were like my dreams
Red, gold, and green, red, gold, and…

Actually the idea behind it is a little bit of bling to encourage participation.

Way back in the old days, avatars, color backgrounds, member notations, etc had to be purchased with ATS points. Even more space in your inbox and even increased character count in your posts were connected to how much you participated and how well you followed the T&C. As post removals meant losing ATS points. They still mention it. Applause still gets you 500 points...but those points are no longer tracked.

Stars, Flags, post counts, and thread counts are still tracked and are used to determine WATS and Karma scores as well as Bronze, Silver and Gold Contribution levels. Although Bronze and Silver is less commonly seen than Gold.

Some even are listed as “Member or member“ depending on a few factors such as timeframe of join date. Even a few FSME tags out there that are not really used anymore either.

So what is it all? Fragments of the past, really. Fragments of the past.

It's not all bad .

When you get into a debate with a popular person. They will say something that's wrong yet get 10 or 20 stars from their groupies flinging their selves at them for approval .

Then when you prove them wrong you have just defeated 10 or 20 people in a debate .

Always look on the bright side . 😬

Loverboy is one of those "we had a few good songs and were popular a little while, but now we peaced out with our money because we weren't serious musicians" kind of bands.
