Chacham's Journal: Comment modified twice offtopic. 2 2

This message was modded as off-topic. Interesting since both mods were mentioned in the same message. I simply must have never noticed the name "Pudge" before. I got a nice reply, and a small thread started. Then I was modded down twice.

Modding me once, I can understand. But twice? What was so bad about the comment? Slashdot moderators are a weird bunch.

    I've never been a part of the "Off Topic" police so I can't speak on the mindset. But it certainly seems that some moderators concentrate on pruning the discussion tree, and others concentrate on raising good discussion.
  • on a tangent, I'm an aficianado of the "MOD PARENT UP!" post. While my post is soon mod'd to obscurity, as long as the parent gets 3 or better, I'm happy.

    The last time I did it (in the leaky stolen capacitor dupe, revisited) the parent post got up to 4. It was well worth it.

They are called computers simply because computation is the only significant job that has so far been given to them.
