Karma is a concept that IMHO is not compatible with the idea of need for practical enforcement of community behavioral rules.

"Karma" is a Sanskrit word that comes from the Sanskrit root ​kri​​, which means "action." Thus "karma" in Sanskrit literature (including ancient Hindu scripture, from which it found its way into Buddhist philosophy) refers to the law of action and reaction, or cause and effect. As such, it is an extremely practical concept that actually does fit in this context. In fact, it rather nicely explains the entire introduction of moderation in these fora.
