  • Maybe Slashdot gets paid for ads per unique account they're presented to, so beyond a certain level of activity you're only incurring costs for the site?

  • I remember ~mcgrew complaining about that in a JE a while back.

      Yes, quite a while back, but I haven't seen it lately. I wonder if it's a bug in the slashcode that gets a commenter's karma confused? I think gmhowell's karma is probably good if not excellent (mine has remained excellent since I first got an account).

        Down to 'good' these days. Lots more thin skinned mods these days than there were in the past. Not worth gaming it to get it back to excellent.

          Not to mention the ones that will mod you down if they disagree with you.

  • Even on my busiest days here on slashdot, I don't think I have that much posts.

      Not that much at all. One top level comment and four replies to five stories doesn't even leave any comments for a JE.

  • I've had that limit imposed in the past, though I rarely hit 25 posts per day anymore due to having other forums that I'm interested in. Why hang around on slashdot when you can target your trolling to random blogs on *exactly* the subjects you're interested in, or better yet, make your trolling actually count for something in the comment boxes on large newspapers' opinion pages?

  • I'm not sure if I've ever posted that many times in one day here. Lately I've hardly been posting at all as the coverage has been so embarrassingly slow that I have seen the same news elsewhere at least a full day earlier. I honestly see more relevant tech discussions on some times than what bubbles up on the front page here.
