I've seen this used as a method to keep the trolls under control on other forums.
If someone were to have -10 karma, they would only be allowed to make two posts a day or something like that. They can respond all they want in their own threads, but they can't create any more than two new threads or respond to someone else's thread more than twice. The numbers can be set at whatever, I'm just using these as examples.
Anywho, I thought I'd throw that out there. I don't even know if Proboards has that capability.
My karma is really low and I can guarentee you that you will not find a post that was too negative from me, people just hated my "HOFF" AVI so I constantly got smited.... that being said I cant agree with this rule, I will continue to be as much help with my opinions on Inforoo as possible and with your rule I wont be able too

The ignore member feature would be good to have back, even though I wouldn't use it personally. I just can't imagine taking any one member away. All the arguments and bickerings and repetitive debates reoccurring every month is just too priceless to miss. It's the only reason I read them :p ;D
Karma points are just not a reliable way to judge a persons input or maturity amongst the boards. The only way to justify this idea would be if mods were the only ones capable of exalting/smiting I think, which would be absolutely terrible.
It all goes back to that old "It's just a number" argument. :p
Yet it is in this loneliness that the deepest activities begin. It is here that you discover act without motion, labor that is profound repose, vision in obscurity, and, beyond all desire, a fulfillment whose limits extend to infinity.

I have little or no Karma (probably because i just started) but have been to the Roo several times and just want everyone to have a positive experience. I have seen no spammers or trolls to speak of yet.
