Karma versus Thank You.

It seems to me that if you can lower karma as well as raise it, it is kind of a thank you--hey, you did this nice thing. So I wanted to increase the karma for all the people who had commented rather than saying thank you. (It made sense at the time, even if I can't recapture the thought process that went into it.)

So I did the first one, and then on the second one it said essentially, you can only adjust someone else's karma every six hours.

So clearly I have the wrong idea about karma vs. thank you.

Can you remind me where someone distinguishes between them? Because in my head, they're both kind of thank you, but you can reduce karma. What's the difference in intent?

Thanks. Sorry to have forgotten.

For the tenth anniversary of my acoustic neuroma, I got cancer! Yay! (I guess.)
