which I moderated as Troll and was voted Unfair. Why a troll? Because he posted a purely politicaly slam against the US in a scientific thread. In the future, I'm going to only mod one comment in each thread so that if I'm voted unfair in metamod, I can reply to the unmoderated post. I've been getting mod points twice a week sometimes so obviously I've got karma to burn. Might be interesting to see how many unfairs get moded to +3 insightful.
