Journal Journal: Posting to threads..

It's interesting. I start looking back through my various posts of the last year or so, and realize that I see a trend in what I see there. For the most part, it would seem my comments are either unwanted, or unappreciated. At least that's what I gather from the time folks waste using their moderation points to list me as 'redndant' opposed to elevating those comments that are better than mine.

There are times when it's obvious someone is a 'Troll', however, it's always easier to destroy and break things down than it is to build them up.

Perhaps it's better just to keep my mouth shut and let others simply wonder if I'm an idiot, than to open my yap and remove any doubt.

Journal Journal: Meta Moderating..

Holy crap! Today I got a stack of 'Troll' comments to moderate. Only 3 weren't... I hadn't been doing any meta moderating, but I thought I needed to do my duty today. Wow, can I pick'em.

Fools ignore complexity. Pragmatists suffer it. Some can avoid it. Geniuses remove it. -- Perlis's Programming Proverb #58, SIGPLAN Notices, Sept. 1982
