deserves more than 1 point. It's worth exactly the same as one that says "NCAA Sux" or "Saint Urbz hallowed be his name." The system we have now does not incentivize people to create better content, better analysis, better humor than their neighbor, for everyone is treated exactly the same in the end.
It's a crying shame that diaries are worth only 2 points. I've written a few of those things and they take A LOT of work to finish. A good diary should be worth at least 20-30.
