The good of the community is something that the Veritas staff always does have at heart. The karma system was originally implemented with this in mind; observing that similar systems have been productive for fostering and encouraging healthier communities elsewhere, we opted to bring that here as an experiment. So far, we've seen many individuals taking on more productive attitudes and demeanors in pursuit of better score. We feel it has been pretty successful at what we'd hoped it would do. Most of the memberbase that we've spoken to (and polled, in this instance), have found it useful as well, for knowing how the rest of the community evaluates a particular poster that one might not have seen before; it tells a fast story about this new poster. Nothing is ever perfect, and if there's any particular adjustments or suggestions anyone has to tune the system, we will gladly evaluate them. The poll suggests that there is no urgent need for change.
If you are unhappy with your karmic score, Searcher, what you might do is consider what you might do differently or change that might change people's perception of you for the better. For starters, you might want to tone down the level of condescension and rudeness in your arguments.
In fact, I would advise that you do so in general. We want things to be respectful and civil, here. The constant tirade of insults, from "Jr. Jedi" to what have you, are crossing the line. Such continued belittling and disrespectful conduct, to anyone, will be regarded as an actionable rules violation. This is an official warning.
