    Who the hell is taking my HubKarma points and why?

    Forever I have had the same number of HubKarma points, whatever those are.  Within the past week, that point level has dropped by 25% and I have done nothing differently.  Not thaI care, it just my curiousity is peaked?

    Have you been doing the suggest links thing? I did that a few times and mine went up about 2 points haha and has held steady since. I dunno what it's all about...just another crazy number whose equation makes no sense, a lot like the Hubscore!

    I have and if you want them back I want one Million.... no one billion.... Mini me get out of the trashcan.   dollars or they get the axe.   

    Figure if I gotta store up karma for the next life why not take some one else's.   LOL

    seriously though I have no clue, Mine shot up to its current level and has stayed there ever since no fluctations.   I dont worry to much about points or scores I just write and read.    go figure it aint the pictures its the articles LOL.

    I hate to admit it, but I care to a certain extent too. Although, I don't believe one wit in "Karma." Thanks for the question Wayne, I was wondering the same thing - and thanks for the answers rkhyclak and silly outdoorsguy! ;-)

    It was gremlins, Wayne. Pure and simple.

    In reality, I don't know where they go. Mine haven't changed in a while. Maybe there's a HubKarma tax and you are now required to give a percentage of your good karma to the Powers that be.
