Journal: Arse mods part 2

Journal by MikeDX
Ok, I've just used up 4 of my 5 moderator points on some super exciting (not) conversation on slashdot. Now, As I bitched about the mods, I tried to moderate sensibly and even read all those crappy -1 FP!!!!!!!!!!!!1111111 posts.. tempting as it was to mod them as funny.... why mod as funny when underrated will do? :)

Journal: Arse mods

Journal by MikeDX

Why is it that the mods on slashdot seem to be increasingly on drugs. I just meta moderated and almost every single mod that was negative was unfairly modded down.

I say bollocks to them. Enough times I've seen posts modded down to -1 and then brought up to +5 (including my own in some cases) where a post has been made, rightly so as funny, but modded to -1 troll and then had a reply saying something to the tune of "he's making a joke you morons" at which point the post goes up to +5 funny.

Madness I tells ya! Madness!
