Everything in Moderation

So, in general, I mod up. I like to think of myself as a positive person. Occasionally, I'll see something egregious and mod down, but that's pretty rare - Something I do only slightly more often than I use my horn out on the expressway, typically 3 or 4 times a year.

What I wish is that there were more mod categories. I'd like to combine some to make new ones. For example:

Insightful + Funny = Ironic

Insightful + Flamebait = Controversial

Offtopic + Troll = Inane

I'm sure you can think of others.

I'd also like a Sarcastic mod, but I can't decide whether that would be +1 or -1. Along with that would be a Pedantic. Definitely a -1 there. And, to end on a high note, I occasionally run across posts that actually rock my world - I'd like to mod those Enlightening, +1. Kinda like Insightful, only up a couple of notches.

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

  • ul
  • li
  • dl
  • dt
  • dd

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