It's funny.  Laugh.

Journal Journal: Jar Jar is a Jedi!?! Moderation comments, too.

I have a confession to make. I couldn't resist marking this comment as Informative. I know, it's a slight abuse of the moderation system, but it was with good intention. I hope you can find it in your heart to forgive me. I guess not a lot of people cared a lot, as the moderation was marked 95% fair. I've had worse.

The ensuing discussion makes me wish that one could comment on their moderation. I understand why it isn't allowed, but to at least be able to send a message to the person you moderate would be nice. For a positive mod, it would be nice to send praise in something more than a pre-defined list of 8 or so words. For a negative mod, perhaps an explanation, or something.

Also, it would be nice to be able to track comments that you post as AC. I've had only a few, but I would like to be able to follow the conversation in a way other than manually. It would work best as a preference setting, probably disabled by default. I'm mostly just rambling, but if someone would like to take these ideas, feel free. Or comment, as desired.

Yes, we will be going to OSI, Mars, and Pluto, but not necessarily in that order. -- Jeffrey Honig
