I've heard various ideas such as limiting it only after mods have expended their points (this will require implementing a cooldown to prevent a user from getting points again too soon). I want to hear your feedback, and I'll roll together something for the next major update of the site. Leave your comments
Also, staff are quite busy trying to keep the site running and move it forward. I assure you the editors make a great effort to read the site as much as possible.
From my own limited experience as an editor, I like to let the comments play out on their own; I try to fade into the background. Hearing that editors should comment more is an interesting development on my end.
