We have a case of autism in 80 births in healthy children. Born with an high APGAR (newborns viability index) and after vaccinations begin to feel bad. They can no longer deny the evidence.''

Mr_Nitro writes "Hi all. Since the introduction of the so called moderation system, I think it does nothing but prevent some _real_ insightful comments from being seen unless you adopt a 'show all' policy. Often I found comments rated in milliseconds, is this realistic? or just some kid (rnd) clicking? For me it's just a waste of resources really. Would Slashdot editors consider a vote for it? What do you think? (that's obvious, all the pro-mod will mod down other opinions, a little bit twisted isn't it).
