If for no other reason, the best thing about seeing another Bush term in office is seeing the frothing, raving, mad rants of slashbot kiddies for another four years. Funny stuff.
Apparently on slashdot nowadays, "excessive bad posting" can mean one comment that gets caught in a moderation tug of war.
Since slashcode now counts "badness" only in terms of -1 mod points, it's almost ridiculously easy now to get banned for weeks.
Just wanted to add this journal entry to be counted among those getting caught in the giant confusing mess that is slashcode.
Yes, it's a joke, but a really sorry excuse for one.
The editors and readers really need to get out of their basements and see what a real dictator looks and acts like before making idiotic remarks like this.
All it does is denigrate people who lived and suffered under real dictatorships, and belittle the people here fighting for this "dictatorship".
The fact that it's on the front page of slashdot proves that the editors and trolls are really no different from each other.
I assume it was michael who did this, since i replied directly a particularly stupid comment of his, where he insults a reader yet again from his might position as reader and moderator.
