Submission + - How to resurrect reputation

athloi writes: "This is probably a dumb question, but it might relate to the large number of phantom accounts on Slashdot. 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? With karma at -1, without any trolling or other bad behavior, it seems my only choice is to create another account and try again. 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?"

Real Programmers don't write in FORTRAN. FORTRAN is for pipe stress freaks and crystallography weenies. FORTRAN is for wimp engineers who wear white socks.

Working...
