These karma systems have ruined many a forum. The issues are two-fold in my opinion:

1) people vote based on if they like the poster, not whether the post is informative

It all becomes a popularity contest rather than a tool for discerning valuable posts.

Apparently there was a Roman Emporer called Maximinus, cute name.

The first Roman Emperor never to have actually set foot in Rome. He almost did - when he marched on Rome but they shut the gates on him, and so his starving soldiers turned on him during the siege and killed him.

Yeah, we can see these two points in action here with what appears to be two people voting every one of your posts down regardless of what you're actually writing.
