OSNews, Generic OSes Today, after much feedback and evaluation, we implemented some changes to the way OSNews "moderation" works. Previously, we had a dual-purposed feedback system - an "up" vote was based on agreement, but a "down" vote was based on specific rules. We've changed the way things work around here, read more for the details.

A way to make folks think twice about abusing any mod system would be to make public every member's moderation record via a new tab in their membership details. But I guess this might add hugely to msql overheads, etc. Or, limit that record to modding down only - a light threat of naming and shaming for those who think the mod system is for promoting/demoting their favourite hobbyhorses.

That's a really good point. You have to register in order to comment, but you can basically mod away anonymously. I like the idea of a link to "see who modded this comment" attached too every comment. maybe not the best way to implement it, but the main idea is non-anonymous modding.
