More mod system abuse

So, once again, some right-winger has modded down one of my posts at the last second. At least it wasn't "overrated" this time.

Those with a desire to slavishly serve the powerful are intrinsically dishonest - they can't help but game the system as hard as they can, it's simply an expression of their nature.

I had that happen in journal replies (1)

Methinks a certain person we shan't name is using his power to mod down thoughts that don't match his personal views.

Just like his comrades in the White House do.

You talking about that moron pudge? He's a miserable failure and Bushevik in the worst tradition of Dubya. Actually appears to have failed as a journalist before failing as a /. programmer.

My suggestion was that negative mods should not be invisible to the target of the mod. That would make it easy to recognize serial abusers. However, in general anonymity should be reserved for situations that call for it, and there are very few.
