  • ( ) MS blowz, linux rules (or a variant)
  • (*) You made an unoriginal joke about Slashdotting (servers turning to powder, melting, etc.)

  • ( ) You copied text from a previous post that really might have been one of the three I's
  • ( ) All you did was copy text from the linked article
  • ( ) You simply criticized Microsoft without making it funny
  • ( ) It is bloated with unnecessary technical claptrap
  • ( ) All you did was pose questions (like a stoner)
  • ( ) All you did was pose questions (like a lawyer)
  • ( ) You utterly failed to comprehend the article or article blurb and made entirely irrelevant comments

[ ] Your post may be rated too highly in general for the following reasons:

  • ( ) You are an asterisk who has, knowing the story's release time in advance, pounceposted to get first p0st and get modded up early
  • ( ) You are one of the editors and are getting your ass kissed
  • ( ) One of your fans has weighed in for you
  • ( ) One of the editors has blessed it with an "underrated"
