If people aren't mature and level headed enough to treat something like karma as a toy, I don't think I want to deal with them on the forum anyway.

I'd give people a little leeway for that. It's not too hard to see negative karma as a guage of how many people think you're stupid & should be ridiculed at every corner. Particularly because that's how it tends to turn out on other sites.

Also, joining a new forum (particularly one that has me in it) is a rocky road at best.

It's an ice cream that many people find to be delicious? Why aren't we using that to attract more people?

You people & your unconventional creatively named ice creams disgust me.

Like I said, you keep dropping your feathers all over the place. You know how tedious that is to clean up?

It always struck me as harmless fun. Still does. Discrepancies of opinion suggest that this is a topic worth discussing, but perhaps it should not be considered, like, you know, serious.
I am an old man, and I've seen many problems, most of which never happened.

Is there any way to tell which post got you the smite? I don't mind being smited for difference of opinion or what have you, but I would like to know what earned to proverbial bitch-slap.
Matthew 22:39 "And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself." God's own "don't be a dick" rule.

Lithp and Vene really need to have some kind of confusing sexual encounter where Vene spends the entire session lovingly insulting Lithp's technique, then cums on his face, ruffles his hair, says, "You're all right, kid!", and then punches him in the nuts.

No, you can't. This is why it is a toy. I've gone and smote/exalted everybody on a page before just because I could. I know I'm not the only one who has been fucking with it. It does not represent anything of any significance.

I exalt and smite people to make their karma nicer numbers. For example, now Vene's positive and negative Karma are both multiples of 7.

I was gonna smite you at first, but then I decided 6/0 was better than 5/1.

So on another board I go to (actually a vBulletin board), there's a reputation system that's much akin to karma.  The difference is that people can only give non-negative values to other.  Yes, they can give zero, but they can't subtract from other people's score.
