How much quality can one expect from taking part in small talk?
In the lounge some of us answer 1-2 threads and some of us answer most of the threads.
It is small talk to pass the time away. If it is there for some greater purpose then people need to let us chattier folks know.

It isnt about quality "talk" it is about quality "friendship." People get too wrapped up on karma and post count. Karma and post count are worth nothing...It is the interaction into the lives of others that has value.

This is what I am talking about!

happy_terd's post is thoughtful and thought provoking.
Nice.

If you must know... this is small talk.

And this is big talk.

Did you guys want me to deduct some of your karma? Strange request but I can do it.

In Spain we have this news aggregator called Menéame, a Digg for Spaniards, so to say. You can give both positive and negative karma to other people's news and comments, and it causes so much idiotic consequences (karmawhoring, endogamic karma-giving, flock behavior) that the site is almost unusable. So, please, NEVER EVER add negakarma, particularly in a forum as big as this one.

Don't worry, negative karma was abandoned here several years ago and we have no intention of reintroducing it.

Nah, negativ karma isn't the right thing to do. I guess i will just push the red button. Let's see what will happen with Bob this time....
