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?

    I don't mod AC's anywhere but up. If I think it's worth reading, I'll mod it up so it gets more eyeballs.

    Downmodding AC's is kind of pointless - either they are at 0 where the only folks who get to see them are the folks who choose to do so (so why interfere), or they are upmodded, in which case other moderators already found the comment worthy of more attention.

    PS: If you were trolling: congrats! Bait widely taken by many, including me!
