All things in Moderation

[ #6952 ]

Slash moderation is a funny thing. If you want to Karma Whore, it's really pretty easy. Just jump in with something funny early into a discussion. Few people downmod something they don't think is funny, and you are likely to find a few moderators that like it.

I dunno, but I don't feel that this is that funny, really. This post is at least as funny, if not better. Admittedly, the second post is inspired by the first, so perhaps there's something to be said for the moderation.

I really like the move on Slashdot to keep the actual Karma number a secret and report levels only. I know I was overly conscious of my number. It's a sickness, no doubt. Someone told me once that I was a troll for discussing moderation in my Journal over on Slashdot. Maybe they were right. Entries like this are an indication of a problem.

Heh, join KA! Karmawhorics Anonymous.

  • I thought the first post slightly funnier than the second, if only because the second only built on a humorous idea created in the first. The original humorous inspiration belonged to the first poster.

    My ratings: 5 out of 5, and 4 out of 5.
