Ok. Boy. I need mod points. I COULD go and create a new account, but then, it wouldn't be with my name, SalsaDoom. It'd be with another name, but I don't go by any other names. Just that one, so, I'm forced to just touch it out in -1 world and hope that enough people give me mods points that I can actively participate in discussions again. Its hard going!
I'd like to do it honorably, but posting good, intelligent things, but at this rate, I think that I am going to start doing cheap crap, like starting my posts with, "I'm going to get modded down for this, but" then say something completely inane. See, the mods see that an think, "Well -- I'm gonna think out of the box on this one, and think objectively.. why, I can't mod him down just because I disagree with him!"
Its all rubbish of course. I've seen so many +5 Insightful posts starting with that its not even funny, its sad.
I mean, for fuck sakes! I've been using linux since 94. 94! I deserve a positive score on slashdot if only because of that. And not redhat or some shit, Slackware! Ok, I use Gentoo now, and have since.. uh, sometime. But I'm not a Gentoo troll -- check my post history, no Gentoo trolls. None. And I don't update my friggan portage every two minutes either. And... I help people on IRC all the time! I deserve positive mod points.
GIVE THEM TO ME.
