I tried to get a story up here on that, I don't know why they rejected it.
I suspect I know why it was rejected. I've had posts moderated up to "5" and then flagged as "Flame bait" or "Troll" and moderated back down. When they get modded back up they get flagged as "Troll" or "Flame bait" again and moderated down. Does anyone really believe that a "Flame bait" post is repeatedly being modded up to "5" or is it more likely that someone who believes differently than me just wants to silence me? (And has no valid opposite view to contribute to the discussion.) I think you hit the same thing, a Slashdot staff member who simply didn't want to see that viewpoint discussed.
