When mod points count

As most of you have undoubtedly seen, Slashdot is gathering questions to submit to Wikipedia's Jimmy Wales. I respectfully suggest that, if you have mod points, use them in said story. He's an important, smart person whose answers to these questions will (hopefully) inform Slashdot discussion about Wikipedia in the months to come.

He's an important, smart person whose answers to these questions will (hopefully) inform Slashdot discussion about Wikipedia in the months to come.

His answers, however, will only be good as the questions posed to him, and one of Slashdot's warts is that the first comments to a story get a disproportionate amount of the moderation. That's where those of you with mod points come in.

Since this (in contrast to most Slashdot discussions) is more-or-less a zero-sum game, I'd suggest being free with the downmods as well as the upmods.

And here's a link to the questions themselves:

Submission Text Formatting Tips

We support a small subset of HTML, namely these tags:

  • b
  • i
  • p
  • br
  • a
  • ol
  • ul
  • li
  • dl
  • dt
  • dd
  • em
  • strong
  • tt
  • blockquote
  • div
  • quote
  • ecode

"ecode" can be used for code snippets, for example:

<ecode>    while(1) { do_something(); } </ecode>
