    Basically people give you karma and I think some can also take it way.

    Karma is............

    "The law of moral cause and effect; also a person's moral merit/demerit according to one's actions and (moreso) the inner intentions or motives which accompany them in terms of their conformity/non-conformity with dharma. One's karma is said to entail one's rebirth in order for that karma to be realized or fulfilled, and to determine the circumstances of that subsequent life. Attainment of moksha is thought to eliminate the production of karma (in the second sense) altogether, and to bring to an end the cycle of rebirth"

    So basically there is good and bad karma.

    I know what the basic idea of karma is, but I've never seen a place to give/take it from someone...

    Ah, no wonder... it seems like a good idea, but might get a little tedious rating all those posts, plus that would make flame wars too easy
