The About page on SOFU currently says:

You can register if you want to collect karma and win valuable flair that will appear next to your name, but otherwise, it's just free. And fast. Very, very fast.

Shouldn't karma be replaced with reputation?

Shouldn't 'valuable' be replaced with an empty string? –  Jon Seigel May 12 '10 at 2:42
    
@JonS: Probably flair with badges too. –  Josh K May 12 '10 at 14:07
    
Am I the only one who keeps mis-reading SOFU as STFU? For a second there I thought there was a special page being shown to annoying users. –  DisgruntledGoat May 14 '10 at 14:10

No, because we are using the terms generically here "flair" and "karma" in the abstract sense to refer to the concepts.

Not literally.
