Journal Journal: I got a troll rating for a post

Darned if I know why. The wierdest part is when somebody gets pissed off at something you weren't trying to piss people off with. And it's not as though I was lying either, see: http://slashdot.org/comments.pl?sid=185310&cid=15295156/. It was entirely within the context and bounds of acceptable postage given the parent post, but then again, somebody modded the parent up to +5, so they're probably the same ones who were unhappy with me. Ah, the minor trials I must undergo on a daily basis... or something.

Never appeal to a man's "better nature." He may not have one. Invoking his self-interest gives you more leverage. -- Lazarus Long
