Well, let me elaborate on points I have made elsewhere.

This system is already on Slashdot, where comments of companies and products often get labelled as "Flamebait" by users granted moderation privileges. The sanctions are more-or-less identical. I don't class that as acceptable.

This is a system with a much higher barrier for users to be effectively rate-limited. As an automatic system, I'm not comfortable with it, but with an appeals process, it would satisfy some reservations.

Do you mean the user whose post is modded as Flamebait gets rate-limited?

I was last familiar with Slashdot maybe… 10 years ago. I do know they have meta-moderation, some “who watches the watchmen” shit, so if you were unfairly modded you could have recourse (or at least some pretence of it).

I remembered reading that the Karma would eventually move back to zero, and that certainly wasn't true.

Wait, wasn't slashdot one of the boards people left en-mass for reddit?

That was Digg. Slashdot was Digg's predecessor.
