Journal Journal: Now I'm in for it....

So Slashdot informs me that I qualify for Moderator status (I wasn't even trying) and that I have to make a choice: do I moderate or not? Oh, and btw Slashdot needs as many moderators as possible!

Well, okay -- I'll bite. Seeing as how much fun I've had so far in posting my thoughts, however disorganized or bizarre, onto the Slashdot continuum (and actually see a few of them hit the +5 Moderated rating) ...I guess it's time now to start contributing to the order as opposed to just adding to the chaos. Besides, there is a certain satisfaction in stomping on astroturfers and trolls -- what? I can't submit posts to a discussion I've moderated in?? NOOOOOO!!! (Just kidding.)
