If people say something really funny or do something really bad. That's all.

One night a girl named Dot met a young man named Winston at a local pub. He asked her to come home with him and she obliged. Later in the night, Winston asked Dot to suck his dictum but she refused. Despite his crushed ego, Winston then asked Dot to have sex with him, at which point she gasped "I'm a virgin, your dictum is going nowhere near my personal jurisdiction!!" Winston, appalled, responded "I don't want to pop your tort anyway!" The res is judicata.

Usually for what I see as good/bad foruming, it may be something I think is funny, or a joke that failed miserably. I've given +K to people who were debating against me, just because I thought they had good valid arguments, I still felt they were wrong though.
This signature is only a temporary replacement for something that is actually funny.

Habit. I don't even know anymore. I tend not to give -k becaus if you piss me off I'd rather flame you.

I give out positive karma when somebody says something that is either funny, or interesting in a "Hey, I'm not the only one here who cares about this" kind of way.

I give out negative karma when somebody does or says something that is incredibly stupid, as long as I'm not directly involved.

Like the eyetoy, right? MAGUSMAGUSMAGUSMAGUS

Here are my reasons for positive karma:
If someone says something hilarious
If someone says something that is reasonably funny, and they've been saying funny things in a few threads
If someone makes a good thread, or a really interesting post
Also what mmac said above me
And an alternative, if I think the person is a super awesome poster, sometimes I'm just happy to see that they're posting and I'll give them +k. This is pretty much just swiss.

-k
If someone says something especially cruel, that isn't funny
If someone has been a shitty poster recently, or specifically has tweaked my anger in a number of threads.
Sometimes I'll even give someone -k for trying to be funny and failing horribly, but that's rare.

Almost all karma (positive) from me is given out for comedy reasons. Occassionally, but rarely, for a well-thought out post.

Negative karma is for stuff I wouldn't do - like kicking myself in the balls. That's a bad idea. I don't like stupid post ideas.

I'm guilty.
