If THIS doesn't prove the lameness filter is too tight, I don't know what does. :-)
How about a [code] option in the pull down (instead of Extrans)?
SECLEV has to be set by a site operator (or, as we used to call them back in the good old days, a SYSOP). As such, karma is not relavant or related to that - you have to DECIDE to give someone access to that feature.
KARMA is something anyone can aquire - known, trusted, or not. ALL the trolls on slashdot start out by whoring an account for karma until they hit the cap - then, they post trolls or flood stuff until the account is drained. Lather. Rinse. Repeat.
Basing the looseness of a filter on Karma is maddness for this reason, in my humble opinion, but I'd LOVE to see a way to exclude filters based on seclev. This would allow us to give a sort of 'trusted' status to friends, or people we know aren't going to abuse such trust, without letting the system make the decision for us.
Right now, I use the author flag that way to give unlimmited moderation to a select few. Not the best use of it, but it works. I'd like to see some logic in the filter like 'if seclev =>1 then !filter posts' so that I have a choice there as well, or perhaps a 'not filtered' checkbox for trusted users.
