After running without being logged in for quite a while, today someone else tried to login to my account. So I received an email from the friendly people at Slashdot and I decided to log in again.
Actually, not being logged has been starting to piss me off. I've posted many AC comments, but I was never able to find them back. We'll see how it goes. I don't have time anymore for the full-on Slashdot addiction, but the occasional comment has to be posted.
For those doing scientific experiments on Slashdot and are interested to learn about these issues; it's pretty damn rare for a post to be (a) late to the game and (b) by an AC to be moderated up at all, let alone to +5. Yet if the same person (for example me) posts using a 'Good Karma' account, with the accompanying +1 bonus, all of a sudden the (one would think relatively similar) posts get modded up to +5 quite frequently.
What this exactly demonstrates, I don't know, but I thought I'd share it with you.
btw. if you were the one trying to steal my account, leave me a message. I've no hard feelings.
