I remember reading once in cmdrtaco's journal about people not metamodding "funny" mods.
I was thinking, perhaps it is because "funny" doesn't do anything anymore, except waste a mod point.
You don't gain karma from it, in fact, you can lose karma from it. Someone mods you up "funny" then mods you down "overrated".
Maybe over/underrated shouldn't affect karma.
I'm really getting tired of reading articles about people who think intellectual property isn't property. I have had a hard time believing people could be so pig headed about the issue until today, when riding my bike home, it hit me like a 30 mph headwind.
People who don't think intellectual property is property never created any. Or perhaps they never created any worthwhile.
Us geeks have been going about this all wrong. There's no reason for all theses worms to be going around. They're costing the economy millions upon millions of dollars, and costing the american people many hours that cannot be replaced. This is more debilitating than a terrorist attack. While microsoft is no more responsible for the worms than the airline industry is for 9/11, it doesn't mean changes can't take place.
So VA is attempting to crack down on the jokers on slashdot. No more karma for funny mods. But you still lose karma when your +5 funny gets modded down overrated.
There still is no metamod for overrated.
I've given up on posting anymore, not going to feed this hellhole. The trolls are the most interesting, it seems.
Slashdot, what have you become?
Someone asked me if I ever scored with my ex-girlfriend. I wasn't planning on answering this. Some anonymous coward asked this question, however.
I never really planned on scoring with her. Yeah, she looks like she'd be a good deal of fun in the sack. Yeah, she's not bad looking. Yeah, she can look me in the eyes and turn my insides to mush. But then again, so can any woman with a comliness higher than 12.
So I post a comment and it gets modded down overrated either 3 or 4 times. I don't remember now. Of course it was to avoid metamoderation. Such COWARDS!
Granted, it wasn't my best work, and probably deserved to be scored a 1.
You scratch my tape, and I'll scratch yours.
