You know, you really shouldn't call attention to yourself like that. (Or maybe an AC supporter of yours is not really doing you any favors.)
For the record, those submissions you found on my firehose are there because I tagged them. That way, I can exclude that tag from my mainpage firehose filter, thus removing your posts from my view, without demoting it from public view.
I haven't moderated in years, and I don't really promote or demote in the firehose either. I like to use it to see what stories are just under the radar, because they're usually closer to the original spirit of Slashdot than what escalates to the main page today.
I never down-mod opinions I disagree with. I'll debate. I'll argue. I've stooped to trading insults on more occasions than I care to admit. I've walked away in disgust for long periods of time. I've used the "foe -6" preference and tag filtering to ignore people I don't want to deal with. But I will not use Slashdot's moderation tools to deny the other side of a debate their right to voice their position. Do unto others...
You can choose to believe this or not, Twitter. You probably won't, and I'll be disappointed, but no more than that. There's no sense in fretting things that are out of my control. I'm far from the only person you've had heated exchanges with over the years. (You should know. You have quite a list there.) There's not much to be done about that signal-to-noise ratio. The best any of us can do is to state our case, and this is mine.
