Overrater packs

I now believe that there is a class of people on Slashdot who do the following:

  1. Get mod points.
  2. Look for posts by people on their foes list.
  3. Mod them Overrated, no matter what the content of the post is.

Some newcomers at this practice will mod people Troll for no reason, but they learn quickly that Troll can be metamoderated and switch to Overrated.

There is no earthly reason to have a moderation is that not subject to metamoderation!
