Angry Mod

Wow, somebody's hitting up my comments. They went through certain recent posts of mine and started downmodding them on a few, using the overrated qualifier. I noticed it happening while they were working on it. It affected around three to four posts.

Well, to whomever might be doing it, have fun. Whatever floats your boat I guess.Wow, somebody's hitting up my comments.

But, if you're going to do something, do it right. You were slower than shit modding me down. It took you like 10 minutes between each post! What's wrong with you? It doesn't bother me that you're trying to mod a bunch of my posts down (why you would want to, I don't know), but it does bother me that you can't do it properly...

numbnuts.

Why does it matter how fast I modded your posts down?

And OBTW, it was 5 posts...

For the sake of answering this question, I'll assume that whomever posted this is actually the one modding me down, albeit I have no real way of knowing.

Doing it slow isn't doing it right. I highly doubt that you have such a slow internet connection or computer that it would take you that long in between moderations. Thus, I wonder if it's something mentally wrong with the moderator. That's what scares me. Mentally challenged people need help, not mod points.

By going slow, you're taking away that "what the fuck's going on" reaction that you were probably wanting to accomplish. That in combination with my laid back attitude towards this situation sort of takes the point away from what you're doing.

Well, that is unless you think you're doing a great service to the Slashdot community. If that's the case, have fun, little trooper. I bet you make the editors proud. As for myself, I'm amused, yet a little bit disturbed that people just can't do something correctly.

Ha ha... "mentally challenged"... good one. Despite your claim that you're "laid back" about it, your ad hominem attack reveals your true feelings.


As for what I was trying to accomplish, why do you assume it's "what the fuck's going on"? Why not "oh crap, there's someone modding me down, AND THERE'S NOTHING I CAN DO ABOUT IT!!! WAHHH!!!!"?


And yes, I am doing a great service to the Slashdot community. I -- with the help of a few of my friends -- have already knocked you down from "excellent" karma to merely "good". No more +1 bonus for you, matey.

Again, I'm assuming that you're who you say you are.

Actually, I'm not bothered. Do I think it's stupid? Yes. Do I think that you should be doing it? No. But, does it really affect the rest of my day? Hell no. It's Slashdot. If I was truly worked up over little ordeals like this, I'd have a stress related heart attack by now.

However, I never had a +1 bonus, something that you should have noticed easily. I have been $rtbl'd. I've said it in a sig. I've written journals about it. If anything, you should have noticed my posting record never listing anything that was given a +1 bonus. So, you really aren't doing anything but wasting mod points. I can get out of a -1 rather quickly. And, you're really overestimating your influence.

I'm afraid I'm going to have to call bullshit on this coward post. You sound more like somebody who was trying to play the role of the moderator, yet wasn't smart enough to check the backstory.

I guess that you just can't trust a coward, anymore.

Hmmm... you never had a +1 bonus? So why does http://slashdot.org/comments.pl?sid=97006&cid=8292 593 [slashdot.org]
say at the bottom "Karma-Bonus Modifier +1"?

Re:why does speed matter? (0, Flamebait)

illuminata (668963) | more than 10 years ago | (#8381448)

It's just a one pointer. You might want to check your comment preferences page. You've assigned that modifier to give extra point bonuses to people with good karma. Scroll down to the line that says:

Karma Bonus (modifier assigned to posts where the user has good karma)

That's totally different from a bonus that's actually given to the post. Those settings only take for your own account, for you own personal viewing. This kind of takes the point out of the downmoddings, regardless of the fact that others in the community do seem to find worth in what I say. Otherwise, would I have nice karma? I'm certainly not whoring, either. My views aren't that common around here, but people seem to think something of them, as they were moderated as such until this.

The person doing this should warm up to a happy little mug of hot chocolate and quit getting so worked up over what I say. I've got people from all over the political spectrum on my friends' list and friends in the outside, non-internet world, too. Why you're so upset, I don't know.

If you are sooooo cool, why dont you come out of hiding of annonymous???

illuminata (668963) | more than 10 years ago | (#8483923)

They won't. They're just trying to get somebody worked up around here. They probably just have nothing better to do.

The Commissar will be pleased comrade! The crushing of dissent must continue! The right wingers WILL conform! We will crush all slashdot posters we disagree with!

Re:why does speed matter? (1)

illuminata (668963) | more than 10 years ago | (#8483911)

Whoops, then they're trying to crush the wrong guy then. I'm a libertarian. It really just depends on what issue is being discussed.

Often times I give my pro-capitalism, anti-Stallman views (but I'm indifferent on open source software), so maybe that's why I look like I'm on the right around here.

Anyways. mod mod mod, as fast as you can. You can't crush me, I'm illuminata, man!
