Journal Journal: Moderation Inflation 2

Has anyone else noticed that, as of recently, it seems like there are more higher modded stories than before? I used to be able to fairly consistently read 30 comments per story at mod 3. Now, I more often than not have to bump my thresh to 4 or even 5 to limit the number of comments to c. 30/story.

Has the readership grown, while the stories published per day hasn't? Or, more simply, has the total number of mod points in circulation increased at any given point in time? I'm a little disheartened--I hope this isn't a trend that continues. Or, at least if it does, that we can move our thresh up higher, to 6 or more. It would provide more granularity among reading comments, but I don't really see much reason for it, as -1 to 5 seemed to be working pretty well.

God is real, unless declared integer.
