Submission + - Vaccine-Autism connection - Lawyer:'' Coming dozens of complaints''->

Mr_Nitro writes: Italy — The lawyer Luca Ventaloro, an expert in child health law states: "Given the amount of the civil cases, it was inevitable that criminal justice was aware of this potential correlation between the vaccine and autism or other disorders, has now become a national emergency. We have a case of autism in 80 births in healthy children. Born with an high APGAR (newborns viability index) and after vaccinations begin to feel bad. They can no longer deny the evidence.'' They seem pretty strong footed on the connection, commission is all completely made of doctors and experts in the field. Not an excuse for irrational vaccines fears , but an occasion to improve and acknowledge the possible dangers.

Submission + - Slashdot moderation does more damage than benefit

Mr_Nitro writes: "Hi all. Since the introduction of the so called moderation system, I think it does nothing but prevent some _real_ insightful comments from being seen unless you adopt a 'show all' policy. Often I found comments rated in milliseconds, is this realistic? or just some kid (rnd) clicking? For me it's just a waste of resources really. Would Slashdot editors consider a vote for it? What do you think? (that's obvious, all the pro-mod will mod down other opinions, a little bit twisted isn't it). best regards mrn"
