Suggestion for improvement:
"Score goes to 11"
After the existing mod points system, Score continues in log() to a top score of 11.
(because spinal tap).
Benefit: a score of >5 means the comment is likely a key point, and relevant to the whole conversation. The log() change gives a means to express highly evocative points and topics, presently limited by a score ceiling, without turning score into a meaningless points game.
Very high scores becomes topics of themselves, and can be reviewed in longer time scales, like earthquakes.
This post by steveg for instance, I'd burn a point (if I had it) to move score to 6 knowing another 9 users would as well; and by the sound of it, I'd wager another >1100 users might move it to 8.
