I must be facinated by the whole moderation process. But I have noticed something quite recently. That is not that many articles are getting moderated. And the ones that are moderated remain at 3 or 4 longer than ever.
It makes me wonder if the moderation system is starting to fail or if the SlashDudes have changed the parameters.
I have seen several posts that were RIGHT on target or just plain funny stuck at 1. That is another thing, I don't see many +2s anymore either.
Anyway, it is anecdotal evidence at best; my observations. Nothing scientific or anything.
