Journal donutz's Journal: How to Moderate your own Comments? has safeguards against letting a user moderate their own posts, thus unjustly gaining karma. Well, here's one way to get around that...

Take a moderately [insightful, interesting, funny, etc] post that's currently +2 and moderate it up. Now it's at +3, so it's got more eyes looking at it. Then go back and reply to that post with an appropriately [informative, interesting, insightful, etc] response. Change the subject line to to get more attention. And let the moderators do their work. Bam! You've got some more karma.

Is it fair to do this? Not really....not really very unfair though. It does require you to make a good reply that people will want to moderate up. But it's a sneaky way of getting more attention for your post, to be sure...
