Journal Journal: Redundant Moderation Now Redundant 1

It seems to me that since Slash has gone to displaying comment numbers in their new, long format, the redundant moderation tag is perhaps the most pointless, most abused mod around. Mods who throw this mod down now almost invariably do not bother to check the numbers to see if it is really redundant, or just far down the page in their Highest Score First view.

I realize that stupid moderators is nothing new around here, but it is very hard to easily tell now which comments came first and which came later, without spending a significant amount of time looking at all the post numbers. Is redundant something we really need anymore?

Mommy, what happens to your files when you die?
