I haven't peered into Slashcode, but I have heard a little about the $rtbl ordeal. Considering what's been going on with my account, does it seem like a moderator has used the $rtbl tag on me? If not, what else might be going on?
EDIT: It looks like I have been $rtbl'd, many posts with excellent karma and still no bonus. And, absolutely no messages are being shown, not even comment moderation.
