sorry - this is only funny if you are quite familiar with slashdot.org,
the largest techno/linux/geek list/board/blog around.
if you have an account on slashdot.org, you will be invited to moderate
or to meta-moderate;
moderators assign various moderations to individual posts; the sum of
these moderations gives each post a score, which in turn drives which
comments get displayed, and which ones get filtered.
in addition, there is a meta-moderation process, where previous
moderations get marked as fair or unfair. So if a moderator screws up,
it decreases their chances to be invited as moderator again.
so just to make sure there is no misunderstanding, my comment was
intended to be a light-hearted joke.
