In 3.0, no. It may show up later, but karma was dropped because they couldn't figure out a way to do things right. The fear was that a user could get buried in negative karma and never dig out from it, or could leap to karmic heights and never get brought back down. There was an extensive discussion on this over the course of several weeks; it should be relatively easy to find.

I know user in slashdot that suffer from this. They get one post modded down to 0 and their krama is bad even if their next TEN comments are modded +5...

Reputation points on a discussion and debate board are non starters. They discourage participation when an individual or group with an agenda use it to make people who disagree with them look bad.

Ends up in an attack counter attack with insults in, if required, a stated reason why they did the negative that the one receiving it receives.
