LGF Karma Hall of Fame: “Palandine”Posted: January 9, 2011
I probably should have posted this in the first part of the series, but hopefully it isn’t too late to add a little background…
That was something that I posted back when the comment ratings system was in its infancy, at a time when the whole idea was relatively controversial amongst the lizards. Over three years later, I have to say that my thoughts were fairly prescient. After all, the system certainly has created plenty of entertainment and drama, and even though there really hasn’t been any tangible use for the accumulated karma itself (that I’ve seen), we’ve witnessed lizards using the “dings” in cliques, to deliver ultimatums to each other, and even as a sole reason for giving more updings. We’ve seen long-time lizards banned because of it, as some form of negative reinforcement for the rest of the hive. Come to think of it, I think the sociologists would scratch their heads, and the lab rats would snicker (’cause they can actually use the food pellets at the end of the maze).
Anyway, I’m glad CJ stuck with it, because even if I’m no longer a participating member, I can still use the results to make our points and have a good laugh. So, moving forward with the series, featuring comments ranked higher than CJ’s all-time high of 69…
Electrocution Warning to Lizard Lurkers: The karma you are about to see is at a level that is well beyond your wildest upding fantasies (given the haggard state of LGF), so try not to get any drool or spooge on your laptop, OK? Diary of Daedalus is NOT RESPONSIBLE for any injuries which may result (directly or indirectly) from viewing the following karma score.
Today’s feature is another one from early 2009, from “Palandine”:
