Meta-moderation favours longevity over activity?

Anonymous Coward writes "I've just returned to two slashcode sites - /. and nanodot - after a ~5 months of absence / highly infrequent reading to discover I had Meta-moderation on both. My karma is at respectable levels but hardly atmospheric. This looks like an emergent property of the M2 algorithm but I'm not sure if it's a good one.

The scenario I imagine is people with too much time on their hands karma-whoring their way to decent levels, then abandoning the accounts for a few months in order to end up with M2. Is this worth worrying about, intentional, unlikely, horrible?"

    Karma of +15 gets automatic m2.
    After this, you have to post at least one comment once a week that does not get moderated to 0. This ensures that you are actually an active participant on the /code site.

      Interesting, I've got Karma of 20+, post at least one a week, that start at +1 or go to +2 or +3, and I have not been asked to Meta-Mod for around a month now.
