Journal DeadSea's Journal: Less Moderation

It looks like there are less moderation points out there. I looked down the stories on the front page and I saw that many had zero comments that had reached my threshhold of four.

I put my threshhold back to three, where I had had it until about a year ago. I hope this is a permanent change. It would be really nice if there were far fewer comments actually moderated up to a five. Lately it seemed that whenever I got mod points, it was hard to find good stuff to mod up. Similarly, whenever I would post a good comment, there seemed like there was always a few who would waste a mod point bumping it down from a five to a four (then somebody would come along and bump it back up).

I'll see how I do with a threshhold of three for now. I also want to read cmdrtaco's journal and see what he has to say about it.
