Journal Journal: Awesome

Awesome! I have officially broken the 1000 comment barrier. I think I can die a loser now. Of course, in 24 comments it will be even cooler. Not only will my comments page have a list of comments on it thats intersection with my current comments page is the empty set, I will have made 2^10 comments or 1K(ibi?) comment.


Journal Journal: Everything in Moderation? 1

Well I had an interesting experience just recently. After relentlessly hitting refresh I notice I have a message. I then notice that it is comment moderation. The comment can be seen here.

Now, after posting that comment the mods I would have expected would have been Flamebait, but as of right now it is sitting there at +5, Funny.

Obviously at least one mod thought it was funny, but does anyone else think it's funny? I mean I really don't think it's funny, since it single-handedly insults the entiriety of slashdot's readership. OTOH I was kind of trying to defend the shirts from this guy.

It just strikes me as Funny being a really odd mod for that particular post. It was quite a suprise to see. Of course I could be speaking too soon, in a couple minutes or days it might be down to -1, Funny. (God bless the underrated mod, *sigh*)

Hmm well more experienced /.ers than I have complained about the mod system before so I think I will just stop worrying about it for the moment.

Journal Journal: in retrospect 2

Why does everything I write read like absolute crap when i go read it again? This is a serious question, I don't want a bunch of "cuz u suk" responses, allthough if i get any responses at all, that is probably what they will be. When I am writing something, anything, I always seem to be doing fine. Yet I wait a few days or hours and read it again and I sound like inarticulate moron. I don't get it. Shouldn't I notice my stupidity beforehand? Oh well. Back to hitting refresh for no good reason.
