    I believe (but then again, internet work in mysterious ways) that it would sort itself out if you only got karma for upvotes on comments since I hope people wouldn't upvote "fantastic", "great work" etc.

      Surely it could work if your comment needs to be upvoted to get karma? You may get the odd upvote on "fantastic" or "great work", but no where near as many upvotes as something constructive!

        Precisely the idea. Comments on DN have had an upvote link for ages, but it's only really served to order comments in terms of popularity (I think). Using it to also give karma would be pretty neat too.
