Journal Chacham's Journal: Was there a moderation change recently? 3

I've noticed lately that the amount of +5 comments has grown. It isn't as split from +4 as before.

Earlier, a few extremely interesting stories had this problem. Now, many stories do. I've seen a few stories with over twenty +5 comments. That's annoying. I read +5 when I want the best ten or less.

Am I crazy, or has anyone else noticed this?

  • maybe there are more points floating around.
    I got modd'd up to 5 for a quickie breakdown of TCP and how it "creates" reliability from connectionless datagrams.

    Which, lets be honest, doesn't deserve more than a 3 or 4 (unless your a professor of mine and you have mod points!)
  • Here. [slashdot.org]

    The gist is that they've pulled some points back because there were too many +5s.

    • I don't know about everyone else, but I've been given mod points about once every week or so for the past couple of months. I know I've finally hit the "+1 Bonus," but I didn't know I was such a good /.'er that I'd be given mod privileges so frequently.
