    What is "Karma" on tPF?

    And what does it mean in context of posters' participation?

    Also, why have the other categories with numbers (like "thanked" and "thanks given" been removed?

    Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it everywhere, diagnosing it incorrectly and applying the wrong remedies.

    Thanks and Thanks Given still show up so long as you Show Postbits.

    Karma, as far as I understand it, is all the points you get for getting and giving thanks, go to your Profile, the Experience tab.

    I don't know what the Karma here is or how it's calculated, but I have a $#@! ton of it.

    ...by saying that I'm sure I'll loose some karma.
