softspokenrevolution softspokenrevolution writes  |  more than 8 years ago I had no idea that there were journals on this until I had to metamoderate a comment on a journal.

I felt that was something incredibly odd to do, because the entry had been modded up for being insightful but you know, it was some personal statements and that sort of thing, while I'm sure that it was insightful for the group, did it merit moderation? I'm sure that this is some kind of fluke.
