Now, I understand that you would want to hide your karma points (which is something we could add as an option), but why would you want others not be able to give karma to you?

I disappointed in karma system and it annoyes me a little bit. I would like to opt out of karma "competition", so I don't see it, don't have it and forget it

I'd vote for that.

My social skills are gauche at the best of times.
This Karma stuff is so complicated, it's like having loads of forks at a posh restaurant - I dunno what to do when .

I'm not going to stop posting if there is no karma and won't stop posting if we go to a nuclear option with karma. It's a fun little way to show appreciation to those who are here. sometimes for good works such as posting a great book, or for funny posts that make us laugh.

I had this idea for a while that I would try to have low karma, but apparently I can't give it away fast enough. Give it away, giveitaway, giveitawaynow!

Are the scales published anywhere?

Either you can choose not to show your karma to others and not to see others karma. Or opt out of karma completely, so you cannot give karma and no one can give karma to you?
Is it possible to implement?
