FileNotFound's Journal: People are Silly 1

Journal by FileNotFound

...but you already knew that.

So some genious thought that I was whining when I said that mods are silly...and they are.

Granted my last few posts didn't have the 6 or so 5s in a row, but still. 5 posts of 5 isn't bad I think.

But the point is that mods rate comments simply becasue they're "agreeable" they read them once and say "Hmm that sounds good.". Well written BS gets modded to 5 and stay that way even after every single reply is saying how the parent post is BS. Sadly the replies are ignored...

Then there is the whole "I Meta Mod all Offtopic/Troll/Redundant/Flamebait/Overated as Unfair!" culture. But then I must admit I think that the whole rating thing is kinda screwed.

We need to be able to choose if we agree/disagree with the parent and posts should get a rating based on that.

If everyone disagrees with a post then it's BS.

    At last I'm getting the recognition that I so richly deserve.
