Journal Journal: Posting to remove incorrect/accidental moderation

I have been guilty, among a fair list of members, of accidentally clicking the wrong option when moderating - accidentally down-modding a good post, or modding up a bad post. This is usually followed by the guilty user posting to remove the unintended moderation, and often, a bitch about the moderation system.

Honestly, how hard can it be to have another button to confirm the moderation?

I started to look at making a FF add-on (extension) to alleviate the issue, but it seemed like overkill for what I wanted to do. Then a friend mentioned GreaseMonkey. I hadn't looked at it before, but a bit of research made it appear to be the tool for the job. 5 hours later, and we have a winner!

If you use Firefox and GreaseMonkey, feel free to give it a shot, comment, or improve it! Moderatrix for GreaseMonkey on Firefox. Get it while it's hot!
