FBI Renews Push for ISP Data Retention Laws

theMerovingian Re:not that troubling (179 comments)

Please, they'll bypass the 4th amendment any time they want to get access to the data.

As a criminal defendant, your best hope is that the government did in fact violate the Fourth Amendment while procuring evidence against you. All evidence, acquired directly or indirectly as the result of an illegal search, must be excluded as the fruit of the poisonous tree. Wong Sun v. U.S.

Meta-moderation is fundamentally broken

theMerovingian theMerovingian writes  |  more than 6 years ago

I have apparently lost the ability to receive moderator points. I used to get access to them a couple times a week, and it has now been several months since any were available to me.

This loss of moderator points occurred at the same time that I decided to make a substantial effort to moderate down posts with really dumb slashdot-meme-humor. Meta-moderation most likely flagged my moderation choices as being 'incorrect' too often. Thus, I no longer have access to the points.

I would like to propose a fix to this problem: remove the effect of meta-moderation on "Funny" posts. Whether a joke is funny or not is a matter of subjective taste - some may agree or disagree by using moderation. This is a legitimate form of expression within the slashdot community, and should not be unfairly penalized.

"Funny" posts do not count towards karma, and negative meta-moderation on "Funny" posts should not affect access to moderator points. By trying to raise the level of discussion on slashdot, I have been effectively excluded from the community.
