Sun Solaris, OpenSolaris If Sun gets very serious about Solaris 10 on x86 and the Open Solaris project that it hopes will nourish it, Linux vendors had better get very worried. That's because, in the many areas where Linux is miles ahead of Solaris, Sun stands a good chance of catching up quickly if it has the will, whereas in the many areas where Solaris is miles ahead, the Linux community will be hard pressed to narrow the gap.

The parent seems to be a personal opinion, and not posted as part of an "official" OSN staff function. I agree with the previous respondant to your post, that comments such as that should not be exempt from the mod system. It was a valid criticism. I found it interesting that he ended up getting moded all the way down.

For the record, I did not touch his comment. But it was completely off topic, which other admins frequently mod down.

Anyway, it has been explained many times why all admin comments are exempt from moderation. I really don't mean to be mean, but I will be blunt: deal with it. It's a necessary evil. If the administrative staff posted moderatable comments, they WOULD be modded down by trolls. We are reviewing the moderation system, but it is extremely unlikely that admin comments will ever be publically votable.

I think it's for the best that they cannot be moderated. There should largely be no useful purpose in moderating admin accounts. If an admin is engaging in inappropriate behavior, it's fairly easy for you guys to deal with.
