Submission + - 5 moderator points, what to do with them 4

slashdyke writes: I have somehow earned /. 5 moderator points. I am at a loss as to what to do with them. I have been pondering for a day now, and I only have two days left. So I thought I would ask your advice.

Any suggestions?

5 moderator points, what to do with them

Comments Filter:
  • If you see an insightful post standing at 0 or -1, mod it up. If you see a stupid comment modded +3, mod it overrated. If you see a GNAA, mod it troll. Easy. Just do it!

    • If you see a stupid comment modded +3, mod it overrated

      Please concentrate on promoting rather than demoting.

      When I have mod points, I use them to mod up (as informative, insightful, interesting or - very rarely - underrated) good posts and mod down as flamebait the incendiary, impolite and disrespectful posts, specially if they are intellectually shallow. I very rarely mod something "overrated"; and if I did that, I would only do it for (maybe) +4 or (specially) +5 posts that were stupid.

      Oh, and please don

        Agreed. When I moderate I seldom mod anyone down. And one shouldn't mod down a comment one disagrees with, he should comment instead. Lots of other stories to spend mod points on.
