    The story IS about your right to not be laughed at for having an itty-bitty, tiny little pecker -- an issue that is of utmost importance to many slashdot readers (myself excluded, of course!)

    This system has been in place for quite some time now.

    If you have flow recently, you probably walked through one.

    So the system is only for girls?

    Welcome newcommer!

    We enjoy having new recruits at our site, slashdot. I am one of our sites many moderators, so that means I'm super important. Don't upset us or we'll downmod you. You have been warned. Back to the welcome message!

    I see that you are unfamiliar with how editors handle messages at Slashdot. It's a proprietary method, since we love Microsoft, its also open source, like Linux, and it also makes no sense, like Apple. There are various categories in which a story might be filed under. When a submitter submits a story, they put in what category they believe it to be under, and other tags that might help in its placement. Slashdot editors take a look at the category, and give it a 50% chance of being filed in there. Then the editors look at the stats of the submitter. This includes Kharma, previous story entries, upmodded comments, skill in grammar, and other various related fields. They use these stats to come up with a 1x, 2x, or 3x* modifier. The Editors then roll a D-20, and multiply the value to the modifier, and add it as a percentage to the total to the previously mentioned 50%. They then create a pie chart in excel with the proper category being proportional to the new percentage. All other categories divide the remaining space. Using a random number Generator, they generate a number between 1 and 100. Where the number lands determines which category the article is placed under, based on the ranges previously defined.

    And thats it! Simple right? I know, I didn't know how it worked when I first got here either, but when once someone tells you, you kind of look back at how silly you were for not seeing it before.

    Welcome to slashdot, and thank you for posting.

    Almost forgot,

    *In cases with a 3x* modifier, where a value higher than 17 is rolled, that would instantly put it inside the category, and the remaining steps can be ignored.

    **In the case of KDawson submitting a story, the modifier is automatically 0x, and gets only a 50% of getting it right, since his stories can hardly be considered good to begin with.

    Nah, I think I'll wave my rights there. I frequently have a good belly laugh about my comically under-sized wang; why shouldn't everyone else?

    National Lampoon's Vacation 2010

    (teenage daughter walks through scanner)
    TSA man: (previously bored, now looks suddenly excited) Um, ma'am, I'm going to need you to go back through the scanner (reaching in pocket)
    Daughter: (rolling eyes) Fine whatever (walks back in)
    TSA man: (pulls cellphone out of pocket, taking pictures of screen) Yeah that's good, stop right there and slowly turn around.
    (daughter turning)
    (another TSA man walks over)
    2nd TSA man: Wow! (reaches in pocket, pulls out cellphone, snaps photos)
    (daughter still turning, crowd of TSA employees gather, all taking photos and mumbles of approval)
    Father: is everything ok?
    TSA man: Um, yeah, but I'm going to need your daughter's cell phone number in case we find something later after reviewing the scan in more detail.
    (daughter exits scanner)
    Father: is that necessary?
    TSA man: (looking stern) Oh? Do we have a problem here? (motions towards two armed airport security guards)
    Father: (looking suprised) NO No, no problem at all! Here's her number, call anytime
    TSA man: (looking satisfied) Thank you for complying. Who's next?
    (people in line look worryingly at each other as if no one wants to go, one person lowers head and begrudgingly steps forward toward the scanner)

    "You fly to Europe or Canada, and their security personnel have a clue - they're practical, they keep a sharp eye out, and they use the right response for the situation at hand."

    The problem is that here in the U.S. we have to be oh so politically correct at all times. We have to treat 74 year old white-haired grandmothers *exactly* the same way as we treat 20-something guys with a bread and a strong middle-eastern accent when everyone knows that the odds of someone from either of these two groups doing something harmful on a flight are massively skewed towards the latter group.

    I think the potential threat of the latter group would depend on what type of bread that 20-something middle-eastern guy has. Pita? Not too worrisome. White? Not too bad. Whole wheat? A little unnerving. French? Time for the full body scan.

    Please proceed to the body-scanner archive room.

    "The whole purpose of the scanners to emasculate and demean the people who pass through them. This should be clear to everyone."

    Former TSA screener, eh? Would that happen to be your photo at the top of this story? ;-p

    The best part is that this story plays nicely with one opinion about such institutions, popular here and there ...

    I kinda expected the follow-up to be "... , that TSA workers have small dicks". ~
