RANT ON

I think this is the last post I will submit for a while on Slashdot. I thought I was stating my opinion on a topic, and if someone didn't agree s/he could post a counterargument. No, sir. Instead I was flamed and modded down as a troll. And the flame was modded up to +5, Insightful. What the flying, fucking hell is going on there. The flame is

I think this is the last post I will submit for a while on Slashdot. I thought I was stating my opinion on a topic, and if someone didn't agree s/he could post a counterargument. No, sir. Instead I was flamed and modded down as a troll. And the flame was modded up to +5, Insightful. What the flying, fucking hell is going on there. The flame is one thing, but the moderation system is totally fucked up: neither one of us got the mods we deserved. If someone wanted to mod me as Overrated, that's fine. That means you think the +1 mods I've been given weren't deserved. FINE. But don't start fucking calling me troll when I'm not trolling, and don't mod up some asshat flamer as insightful. Apparently nobody even has a fucking clue what a flame is anymore. Here's a goddamn hint: when you attack the person rather than the position (i.e., an ad hominem argument, not that any of you sad sacks even understand what I'm talking about), that is a flame.

I had a similar experience a few weeks back when I correctly modded a troll post as "Troll." Then some cockgobbler metamoderated me as Unfair. (It's too bad you can't dig up your own moderation history, or I'd put a link.) That really steams my ass. Fuck you.
