Chacham's Journal: Diaretical: Five more comments modded down. Karma "good". 8

Journal by Chacham

Well, it happened again. Someone set out to "get" me. My karma is "good". IIRC, it was "excellent" earlier today. Considering the order, he probably just went to my comment page and clicked the first five.

It doesn't even bother me that much. I mean, if it's that easy to give some kiddie his thrills, then sure, why not? The issue, however, is that ultimately this can affect my posting abilities, whether in the amount allowed to post, or if people will see my posts in the case where i post to a story, as the extra karma point is nice.

On another note, the friend/foe issue is temporarily pushed off until i set up my email server. That got moved up in line, plus, i plan to use that host to run the script that'll to the changeover. Unfortunately, i'm lazy, and am hitting it slowly.

    HEY, MOD-BOMBER! COME GET ME NEXT TIME! Jerk.

    That's quite distasteful. There should be some limit on how people find the comments that they moderate. There should be some way to detect mod-bombing. I can't think of any methods that wouldn't get in the way of normal moderation, though, and/or be incredibly complex.

    Overrated/underrated don't even get meta-modded, at least not directly.
    It always bugs me when people get mod-bombed like that. You, Montag, a few others... grr.
    I'm glad you're not too pert

      There is, it seems. If I got mod-points and decided to blow them all on mod-bombing you, for example, Slashcode automatically alerts an editor to "possible abuse". Not perfect - a subtle mod-bomber can still get away with it by moderating f

        Interesting. I didn't know that. Thanx for the info.

      I believe someone mentioned it before. Not to allow more than one mod per person in any set of five points.
  • Due to this crap happening to you, I'm going to MetaModerate a lot more. Maybe we can disable the moderation privaledges of the dickheads who think this is funny.
  • The situation has now been reversed for the three I could moderate - the other
    story I must have already commented on, or it was archived.

Have you ever noticed that the people who are always trying to tell you `there's a time for work and a time for play' never find the time for play?
