#405 Why Meta-Moderate Uninteresting Threads?

Slash 2.5/3.0
Moderation (57)
Walt French

I'm happy to meta-moderate, but I don't think I can add much
value to rants about communism versus the RIAA, subtleties of
different video cards' gaming performance or a whole raft of topics
such as I see when I DO M2.

Seems like a waste of time for all concerned... even if I chase
down the parent thread, it takes me a long time to get the context
that a post might be "off-topic" from, etc. And since I don't
understand these areas that well, my opinions -- even, I'll guess,
the fact that I let a rating stand -- seem to merely increase
randomness in the ratings.

Maybe the choice of topics for meta-moderation could be lifted
from my profile, or be tracked separately?

    This is highly unlikely to happen, sorry. Though we'll consider it when we
    look at moderation in the coming months.
