What is the "COMMENT KARMA," and what purpose does it serve? I've just noticed that I have 9.
You use it to purchase things from the secret karma store on the site. (This is a joke and a very common one here at that)
Seriously though, Whenever you comment you have 1 point next to your name if people like what you say they upvote you and you get karma if they don't they downvote you. Its supposed to be a way to show you that your being helpful, but most people upvote because they find a comment funny and entertaining (a lot of helpful comments get ignored, but funny comments always get upvoted). It just represents that, it doesn't actually have a use and wouldn't be considered an accurate representation of how helpful people are hence why most people don't care about it.
You clearly don't use reddit
I do xD but just to ask questions on the /r/buildmeapc and /r/buildapc subreddits :) but now I know what the karma point means there and here
