This is double-good plus one, most excellent.

Mod points are so orwellian. I can't believe they've addicted me so much! lol.

Nice to feel "human" again (being read/heard).

I guess I need to change my sig block.

Journal: Holy Crap! I moved up in value!

Journal by garroo

Finally, after looking at all those -1 posts, I have reached up to the utterly astounding heights of 0.

Woot! I'm a zero. I'm nothing! Yayyyy.


Silly how things like moderation level can skew your day, eh?

Here's hoping I can keep posting my insightful and interesting items! Ah, the struggle to be heard among the cacophony that is the Intra-Web.

Journal: Got a Fan

Journal by garroo

Wow. I got a fan. No friends yet. But I sure have a fan.

What exactly does this mean? Does this help me in some way? :-)

Maybe he's the one throwing me some mod points. That would be cool to not be totally rendered useless by a moderation system for the masses.

Better than having freaks I guess. lol.

Journal: More about Mod Points

Journal by garroo
Ok, so now I'm really not understanding this.

The mod point system in relation to Karma... how does it work? Not by any sane reason.

I look at my scores, and how they just suddenly changed into a negative. There was some people upset about a humourous post.. maybe that was it.

But still, can one post put you so far down?

And if that is the case, why can't my +5 Funny bring me back into good standing?

Someone answer! Anyone?


Is this thing on?

Journal: Mod Points.... doh! 1

Journal by garroo
Just don't get the mod points thing. All of a sudden, I've gone from neutral to slightly good, then into terrible Karma.

Some posts have been remodded by admins I think, after the fact. Dunno. Maybe I'm wrong.

Slashdot perplexes me.

Anonymous coward flame bait whores aggravate me.
