Journal skillet-thief's Journal: First point of view on the mod-point system

Initial observation about moderation on /. :

If your posts start at only +1, it seems difficult to get to +2. Once there, however, one gets fairly easily to higher scores.

Conclusion (temporary) : the moderators are really still mostly reading already moderated posts. Maybe there should be a moderation display mode where the moderators only see posts below a certain threshold.
