First, check my last few days posts (Keep in mind, I was banned over the weekend, so just from monday on).
That's right... one score:2 post was modded to -1. ONE SCORE:2 POST WAS MODDED TO -1!!!
And I'm banned again.
Here are the theories:
1.) One person with 5 mod points has the ability to ban someone. It looks like 3 downmods, and you're gone for 72 hours.
2.) You need 3 downmods to one post, or one post to get to -1 and you are gone. What if you just post something redundant? TOUGH SHIT! We'll see you back in three days(?), SUCKER! FYI - this will be GREAT for newbies coming to the site!!!
3.) An editor *cough*michael*cough* decided they didn't like me and just banned me.
You can go off with those theories and do experimentation if you like (hell, run with #3 and make your OWN conspiracy theory!). Me? I'm gonna work on a substitute for slashdot. Don't question the editors, don't question the moderation system... we believe in democracy, just not on OUR site. Screw this, I'm out once I figure out how to read and comment to people's journals and get responses without this pile of shit known as slashcode.
Of course, I can't reply to shit, so if you want me: marotti _at_ gmail.com
Update: Einstein upmodded me 3 times, now the ban was lifted? That doesn't sound right, but mad props to einstein for the help.
Of course, this isn't preventing me from taking action on a substitute...
