Karma

Oneblueleg:
Dear Admin,

I notice with interest, and some amusement, that my Karma score is -1 when it was (and everyone else seems to be) zero.

What does the Karma score mean, and how is this calculated? or is there some form of human input?

jmoore:
i was going to ask what is that karma thing there is someone that should be a neg 20 for the attitude, do we click on it to vote?

pyourke:
Me too... I was curious what it meant also, and what it was based on? :-\

Oneblueleg:
Seems like I'm the only one that needs to worry at the moment :D

Sparky:
Ian, at least someone has thought enough about you to give you a rating :).

In Buddhist teaching, the law of karma, says only this: `for every event that occurs, there will follow another event whose existence was caused by the first, and this second event will be pleasant or unpleasant according as its cause was skillful or unskillful.' A skillful event is one that is not accompanied by craving, resistance or delusions; an unskillful event is one that is accompanied by any one of those things. (Events are not skillful in themselves, but are so called only in virtue of the mental events that occur with them.)
Therefore, the law of Karma teaches that responsibility for unskillful actions is born by the person who commits them.
