I've discovered the user modifier modification settings page. This is coolio! I've changed my 'TROLL' modifier for +6 and lo and behold there are some really funny and interesting posts that I would otherwise never had read. Oh, sure you have the standard trolls, but some otherwise funny or interesting takes are quite often modded overall as troll. I think it provides an interesting take on the slashdot moderator demographic. FWIW, I have not had moderator points in long time, I believe that I am flagged.
