Limited to 25 posts/day? When did that happen. Lame.

Maybe Slashdot gets paid for ads per unique account they're presented to, so beyond a certain level of activity you're only incurring costs for the site?

Been that way for a while (1)

I remember ~mcgrew complaining about that in a JE a while back.

Yes, quite a while back, but I haven't seen it lately. I wonder if it's a bug in the slashcode that gets a commenter's karma confused? I think gmhowell's karma is probably good if not excellent (mine has remained excellent since I first got an account).

Down to 'good' these days. Lots more thin skinned mods these days than there were in the past. Not worth gaming it to get it back to excellent.

Not to mention the ones that will mod you down if they disagree with you.

It's called neutralizing a known troll (you) (0)

You've been NEUTRALIZED troll. Haha, too bad for you. Anyone in your troll pack has been.

You have to admit that's quite a lot (1)

Even on my busiest days here on slashdot, I don't think I have that much posts.

gmhowell (26755) | more than 2 years ago | (#40148987)

Not that much at all. One top level comment and four replies to five stories doesn't even leave any comments for a JE.

Check your Karma (1)

I've had that limit imposed in the past, though I rarely hit 25 posts per day anymore due to having other forums that I'm interested in. Why hang around on slashdot when you can target your trolling to random blogs on *exactly* the subjects you're interested in, or better yet, make your trolling actually count for something in the comment boxes on large newspapers' opinion pages?

Ironically, since AC posts don't seem to check the limit, nor do they count towards it, I'm trolling even more than in the past. With more obnoxious and offensive statements. So this stupid policy is making Slashdot worse, not better.

Sadly, the straw that broke the camel's back was a post I made saying that I thought soccer was boring. There are so many jock sniffers among the 'geeks' that my karma, after a decade or so, is down to good.

Marxist Hacker 42 (638312) | more than 2 years ago | (#40155351)

Wow- Soccer is boring got you knocked off the Excellent?

Slashdot is now fourth on my reading list- it's even behind Mark Shea's "So that no thought of mine, no matter how idiotic, is ever lost again" blog.

25 isn't enough? (1)

damn_registrars (1103043) | more than 2 years ago | (#40162879)

I'm not sure if I've ever posted that many times in one day here. Lately I've hardly been posting at all as the coverage has been so embarrassingly slow that I have seen the same news elsewhere at least a full day earlier. I honestly see more relevant tech discussions on woot.com some times than what bubbles up on the front page here.

it has been noticed that you haven't even been using your red-wannabe troll account as much lately, either.

confirmed: logical_failure = damn_registrars

Five comments in five articles can go rather quickly.
