Retardation? Yes, both the mental and temporal kind.
Before you continue, read the journal entry preceding this one.
An e-mail to CmdrTaco made the mongoloid responsible for the abuse mentioned in that journal entry end up being slapped by a somewhat postponed meta-moderation. You can go back to your Portal now, there will be no more moderation points for you here!
But the fun doesn't stop there.
Today, nine(!) bloody days after that story and my comments were posted, there's still a fuckwit out there who insists on trawling through the posting history of people he doesn't agree with and abusing the moderation system for his personal vendetta or whatever. Look at this and this.
A suggestion to the Slashdot staff: Make all moderations of posts older than a certain age (say, 48 hours) end up in meta-moderation by default.
