To put it bluntly,./'s tagging sucks. It alows anyone to tag anything with any name/title/etc they want. Now, people's political views or whatever can influence an article with just a click of the mouse. It is a bad idea in its current state.
There should be a predefined list of tags that the submitter can select from. The casual./ reader should not have the ability to change a tag.
I've been reading Slashdot for several years and I always regret loading it on April Fool's Day. There are always idiots who submit retarded stories and the admins always post them. There are actually good stories out there but one cannot tell where they are because of the stupidity that goes on.
Save yourself some time and go watch Barney or something. It's much more intelligent than this rot.

I have decided to stop meta-moderating (MM). After spending why too much useful time on this issue I have found that the claim that MM actually decreases my mod points.

"Your sig...use "L'essentiel", an e is used in french. Also, instead of saying "pour les yeux" (for the eyes), use "au regard"(to sight), or "a l'oeil nu"(to the naked eye)."
