So the forum has more stuff than we don't really use. We had some fun exploring what all those features could be used for. You can rep someone & leave a note about what you liked about their post. Then they see it in the usercp. It seems like several things contribute to karma, but no one is really sure. All we know is the longer you've been around & the more active you've been, the more karma you have. There are probably forums where people look at the karma amount to decide if they trust someone.
I even went to the vbulletin forum & couldn't figure out exactly how karma works.
