Added maggard, because of his sig:
I filter Anonymous Cowards: If their words aren't worth so much as a pen name why should I value them any more?
If he attaches so much weight to a made up name, how much weight can he really place on the actual content of comments? Sometimes the right piece of insight is totally unappreciated around here, and some people aren't willing to risk having future posts derided because some crack smoking mod thought they were trolling by supporting a Microsoft decision for once. Others simply don't have accounts created - I know I was browsing slashdot for months before I bothered to set one up. It's hardly valid to say that if they're not willing to log in or create an account, they don't care about their point of view.
Sure, some ACs are totally brain damaged (GNAA or whatever the fuck), but filtering them all out is just ignorant, and if he has that much of a superiority complex over a goddamned slashdot ID, then I don't want to hear what he has to say, slashmod approval or no.
