How about adding a field to the moderation system. If a post is to be modded, either up or down, require an explanation (ala, Windows 2k3 requring an explanation for a shutdown). Make that explanation public along with the score:
You're all a bunch of fags! - Mr. Sprok, 6/21/2005 12:16:14 AM (Views: 18, Score -2, "Flamebaiting", "Personal grud. . .")
Firstly, it would help eliminate knee-jerk and accidental modding, and second, it would force the modder to at least articulate his claim for or against a post. Having to put into words what you do or don't like about a post may cause some people to reconsider their reasoning. Might help eliminate threads like this:
Pancakes are awesome.- Catdog, 7/05/2005 1:08:12 AM (Views: 6, Score -1, "Pancakes suc. . .")
TOS is teh suxx!- Spongebob, 7/09/2005 11:35:20 PM (Views: 8, Score -2, "No he's not", "You suck mo. . .")
Why Social Security has to be revamped. . .- Dexter, 7/12/2005 4:29:10 AM (Views: 45, Score -2, "SS rox, u r st. . .", "Flyover countr. . .")
Also, the capability to ammend one's modding would be nice. If, for instance, you mod a post, but after re-reading it, you find that it is relevant to the discussion at hand, or that it was meant in a tongue-in-cheek manner you can remove your downmod, or, if you come to the decision that the post you're looking at violates a rule, etc. you can revoke your upmod, and at that time you can apply the opposite mod if you so desire.
I also think that IHA, in it's current state is a kitchen with too many cooks. Either the forum should have fewer mods, or require a higher threshold to become hidden.

“Go to hell, Senator, it’s time for you to take your final dirt nap.” - Nooooo, no, you got it all wrong, see. "Dirt nap", in this context, just means laying down for a short sleep without first taking a shower or anything. This is just a suggestion for John McCain to take up a little better personal hygiene and in is no way violent in nature. You people with your jump to conclusions mats!
You do not have the required security level to post to this thread.
