I have apparently lost the ability to receive moderator points. I used to get access to them a couple times a week, and it has now been several months since any were available to me.
This loss of moderator points occurred at the same time that I decided to make a substantial effort to moderate down posts with really dumb slashdot-meme-humor. Meta-moderation most likely flagged my moderation choices as being 'incorrect' too often. Thus, I no longer have access to the points.
I would like to propose a fix to this problem: remove the effect of meta-moderation on "Funny" posts. Whether a joke is funny or not is a matter of subjective taste - some may agree or disagree by using moderation. This is a legitimate form of expression within the slashdot community, and should not be unfairly penalized.
"Funny" posts do not count towards karma, and negative meta-moderation on "Funny" posts should not affect access to moderator points. By trying to raise the level of discussion on slashdot, I have been effectively excluded from the community.
