Welcome, new trolls! We're pleased as punch to have you aboard, unfortunately as you may have noticed our moderators are unable to give you the moderations you've been working so hard for. Since we can't really do much about people not moderating more, we're going to be giving out more points so that the ones that do can give you the attention you so desperately crave.

Moderators: Starting a little after midnight UTC tonight, everyone will be getting ten points a day instead of five. The threshold for a mod-bomb, however, is going to remain at five. This change is not so you can pursue an agenda against registered users more effectively but so we can collectively handle the rather large uptick in anonymous trolling recently while still being able to have points remaining for upmodding quality comments. This is not an invitation to go wild downmodding; it's helping you to be able to stick to the "concentrate more on upmodding than downmodding" bit of the guidelines.

Also, this is not a heavily thought-out or permanent change. It is a quick, dirty adjustment that will be reviewed, tweaked, and likely changed before year's end. Questions? Comments?

    This is how minor stars go, they first collapse, but then meet themselves at the center, and "recoil with great force from their own selves". Right, not pretty. Would love to mod you up, Azuma, but I am banned from modding, since I took a line from an ancient book, and I spam modded The Mighty Buzzard. So I will limp along, unable to support the sane people on SoylentNews, but I will support where I can with comments. Human Klein bottles! The outside is the inside, and the explosion is the implosion! And jmorris, well, is jmorris.

    Well, it is what you were after, after all. You Spam modded a technical answer and then laughed about it in another comment, so one can only assume that you wanted to be mod-banned so you'd have something to whine about.

    My rights don't end where your fear begins.

      And you fell right into the trap of mod-banning a Soylentil who was objecting to being unjustly spam modded? Not too bright, are we, oh Buzzard who claims to be mighty?

        Buzzy is right here. The spam mod takes more points away than the other mods and it gets added to a queue that Buzzy or other folks have to deal with.

        Perhaps if you'd be less of an incompetent asshole, people wouldn't view you as such a worthless cum stain. Scratch that, at least with a cum stain you get the pleasure of a good jerk off.
