Moderator points expiration

Checked in today and noted the availability of moderator points. Familiar with the process from slashdot, so no real surprise. A significant difference, however, lies in the expiration of the points: one month vs. three days on slashdot. Not sure the reasoning for this. Taco gives his support for the three days in the moderator guidelines (used here on lisnews as well).

re: moderation points

It's still a bit of a mess at the moment. I am slowly figuring out how the moderation system works right now, so to make sure that it works for most people, I set everything to really max out. That is, more people get more points for longer than really should be.
The moderation code doesn't seem to scale down well.
