The edit I put on the following post, I planned to write in a comment to one of the comments, but I changed my mind.
What I would have done differently in my replies to the comments of the following post:
In response to the comment saying “pretty good way of getting more downvotes,” I would have said “You’re right! I should have known better” instead of what I actually said.
Otherwise, to the comment that said “A downvote can’t be false,” I would also have said “You’re right!”

Also, sometimes I think of the idea that only one who is willing to let go of karma completely can truly earn it. Sounds like a Buddhist, or Askari from the Lion Guard. Couldn’t find a video.

That doesn’t mean that you will lose negative karma by not caring about it, but it also doesn’t mean you will lose positive karma by not caring about it.
