What happens when a user, such as myself, makes some useful contributions but then stumbles into a fractious area like, say, Windows Vista fandom or Mac advocacy, and then gets modded down to the point where no future posts are even considered?

Is this what Slashdot editors or users want, or is there another way to get in the good graces of a site I enjoy, even if I sometimes make slightly snarky comments about our large corporate overlords?"
