Slashdot periodically awards “mod points” for users to become moderators (or mods) that allow them to up vote or down vote comments. The score range is -1 (terrible) to 5 (excellent). A mod can apply only one point per comment. A group of mods can push the score in either direction.


YouTube videos have the like (thumb up) and dislike (thumb down) buttons. If you like the video, it will be saved to your “like” playlist. If you dislike a video after liking it, it will disappear from the “like” playlist.
