Good answer...and thanks for answering a question I was about to pose myself :) ...whether or not you count total carbs or 'net carbs,' which subtracts fiber. I knew it was that was for Atkins, but of course paleo is not Atkins, so I was wondering what the paleo folks thought about carbs and net carbs

I'm the one who downvoted. The downvote explains itself - he/she doesn't even complete the sentence. Where's the direct object? Daily "allowment" of what? Carbs? Calories? Junk food? I can't believe you upvoted this crap just to cancel out my downvote.

Down voting without explanation doesn't help a newbie.

The most likely answer you will get is that you shouldn't be counting at all, since counting "isn't paleo."

However, if you're looking to restrict carbs for weight loss, then yes, you count them, minus the fiber. That's what Atkins called "net carbs."

If you're of normal weight and have a healthy metabolism, there's no reason to restrict whole-food carbs. I see you're 14...young, active people need and can Efficiently use carbohydrates in their diet.

Low carb is no longer popular in the paleo crowd, so that is likely why you received a down vote, which I voted back up.
