Well, I wouldn't go that deep. As I said, If I go creating some kind of
api, than we can have even some ajax requests against it (something like
thumbs up / down right bellow profile username). Also adding the karma
point value as ametadata to activity and then having that recalculated
from time to time can be a solution.

Anyway, to be fair I can create a polldaddy to see what exactly
community wants.

Thanks for thoughts on forum integration.
