Journal Journal: i'm a troll? 10

i had my first downmod in ages, and it dropped my karma below 50. apparently somebody thought i was trolling. i had finally had enough of the complaints of "it's not news for nerds/it doesn't matter" when an obituary gets posted, so i went off on a rant on somebody.

my guess is that the parent was modded down (and it was), and somebody saw my post out of context, and moderated it stupidly. either that or somebody thinks that using the word jackass in bold type makes you a troll. hopefully they'll get theirs in M2, though.


Journal Journal: telling off MS

i just got to tell off microsoft. it was fun. i was giggling with glee. you see, i'm finishing up college. so i'm looking fo a job. but when i got up this morning, i found an email in my inbox from microsoft. it seems that they want to interview me. i don't know why - i snubbed them by not submitting my resume. somehow, though they got a copy and decided that they like me enough to want an interview. they just never bothered to tell me until after the sign-up period. so i got to send them an email saying that i couldn't sign up for the job since they didn't tell me soon enough. then i told them it was a moot point since i didn't want to work for them anyway. yay!

Journal Journal: Overrated? WTF? 1

Here's something that's always annoyd me: people who moderate comments as "Overrated" or "Underrated." it's just a matter of not being able to come up with a decent reason to moderate something, and wanting to do it anyway. as far as i'm concerned, Overrated and Underrated should be banned as moderation categories.
