I have a very sad thing to tell you. Very recently I was a victim of the very act of (so called) "[down] mod[eration]-bombing." In probably less than two minutes [sic] my Karma dropped from being capped at Excellent level, to the level called Terrible.
(The shameful connection of this fact to the recent blackmail is obvious.)
So I ask you fellow Slashdotters, please keep moderating up all of my posts as Insightful (or Interesting if you will) until my Karma once again reaches the correct, Excellent level. I expect a quick response so I have already changed my signature to "Karma: Positive."
