Journal Dr_Ken's Journal: On Using Moderator Points on /. 3

It gets to be time consuming and seemingly pointless. I read the article that is linked on the /. entry (usually) and then wade through the comments. Unfortunately the comments pretty quickly tend to veer off into off-topic smart-assery of no interest to me or to have any relation to the topic or trope of the story they are supposed to be a comment on. It makes me wonder if the game is worth the candle.

On Using Moderator Points on /.

Comments Filter:
  • mod parent up.

  • Sure, 99% of the time random crap is just random crap, but occasionally I find something really interesting and mod it up.

    It's not a great system, but it's Good Enough to generate some interesting commentary if someone just wants to browse at 4+.

  • ...all the others that have been tried. It always seems like when I want moderator points I don't have 'em and when I do, the articles aren't interesting enough for me to plod through them all, let alone the comments on them. Such is life. Who don't you see when you haven't got a gun; everybody wants to go to heaven but nobody wants to die..and so it goes.
