21. that was a good post
which was in no way a violation of the community standards, imo.

one of the better features in DU3 is that you can go back and read the "hidden" posts.

I'm really curious about the jury system, how it actually works as far as the selection process. There is a poster on that thread, one who has 97 posts, a 23% chance of serving on a jury, and smells an awful lot like a completely biased sock puppet - who has served on 7 juries. I've got a 60% chance and have served on one. Is the system being gamed somehow? I know from the one jury I did serve on that the alert was nothing more than an attempt to shut another poster up (the post was let stand by a 6 - 0 vote).

I'd post this in the meta section on DU3, but I don't know if I'm allowed to talk about things like that over there. Or really even here, for that matter.
