Journal DavidBrown's Journal: Moderator fear?

Just a thought. Right now, I have moderator points. I seem to get them frequently, having maxed out karma, and I tend to moderate up, mostly.

But today, I saw a +5 Interesting post at the top of the Windows Media Edition review story, and thought that the simple "How much DRM?" question posed was way too non-interesting/intriguing, etc. to really deserve a +5.

So I thought to moderate it down as Overrated.

But then, later down the posts, I saw that there was a discussion related to the moderating of the first post, and someone proposed metamoderating as unfair any of the negative moderations of the parent comment.

So I chickened out.

Why?

I sure don't know. It's not as if high karma and the occasional mod points is important to me. Or maybe they are. Anyway, I wound up not modding the message down, even though it was, IMHO, clearly overrated.

Go fig.

You don't have to know how the computer works, just how to work the computer.

Working...
