Journal Tink2000's Journal: Oh, so that's how it is. 2

So, all my complaining about Slashdot's moderation system is for naught. I just noticed today that there is text on the meta-mod page that says something to the effect of "those meta-modded poorly will cease to be elegible for moderation in the future." So, for something I failed to understand years ago, I've been meta-mod-bitchslapped into forever never moderating again. WAAAH you say? Well, here's my retaliation method against a system that doesn't offer second chances. Firstly, I'm going to poke around and see if I can opt out of meta-moderating. If I can't, then from now on I will meta every mod for great justice adversely.

Edit: Nope, can't opt out of M2 (although you can opt out of M). So, I have a subversive plan in mind. Here's what I'm going to do: I usually post as AC if I think I might have something that can possibly be construed as anything that would result in negative karma. No more. Fuck it. I'm at Excellent, capped out, 50 in old-school-score. So, I'm going to burn it. I'm not going to troll (outright), but I'm going to be as inciniary as possible, offtopic when I feel like it, and extremely overrated. I'm always going to use my bonus modifier. When I hit zero, I'll open a new account.

When / if I ever get to mod again, I'll never mod anything other than over or under rated, as they never hit M2.

Screw you guys, I'm going home.

Screw em.

Oh, so that's how it is.

  • I hit excellent karma quickly, and after a few months, finally got mod points for the first time. I used all of them in a day or two. A few weeks later one moderation was metamoderated Unfair. That was maybe a month ago. Since that one time I haven't gotten any mod points, ever, but I can metamoderate all the time.
