minor issue:

When I am metamoderating, for a moderated rating of
*Informative*, I can metamoderate this rating as
*fair/unfair*. So I am commenting on the
reasonableness of the moderator.

For a moderated rating of *funny*, I can metamoderate
this rating as *funny/unfunny*, so I am commenting on
the original comment, not the moderator, and you get
data on whether I share the same humor as the original
moderator.

I could often metamoderate a funny rating as *fair*
even if I would not personally rate it as *funny* per my
demanding and peculiar sense of humor.

I suggest that all metamoderation ratings are changed
to fair/unfair for consistency.

(Alternatively, if you wanted my opinion of the original
comment rather than my opinion of the moderators
rating, change all fair/unfair labels to
informative/uninformative etc.)

    We did it this way on purpose (and may yet change it in future...)
