Journal IO ERROR's Journal: Slashdot's use of nofollow 2

OK, so /. is only putting nofollow on links when the comment has been modded down. That isn't QUITE so bad. It protects /. from comment spam. However, it does raise one other problem: bad moderators. If a comment gets modded down, and then gets modded back up because some idiot moderator chose poorly, the comment links STILL have nofollow on them.

Slashdot's use of nofollow

  • Last week I got hammered pretty hard.
    'Overrated' I didn't mind, but 'Flamebait', when the post clearly wasn't, especially judging by the even split of the lengthy ensuing discussion, really griped me.
    I will say that an email to fixed the "You are banned for flamebait posts" problem quite quickly.
    Part and parcel of an open forum, I suppose.
