RexTalionis: Dice is going to cock it up.
RexTalionis: Oh, meh. Dice is going to cock it up.
MithrandirBooga: RexTalionis: Oh, meh. Dice is going to cock it up.You say that as if there's anything worthwhile on those sites to begin with. Slashdot has been such an incredible joke for the past decade it's amazing it still exists.
xanadian: RexTalionis: Dice is going to cock it up.That's my feeling, as well.
Uzzah: It is official; Netcraft now confirms: Slashdot is dying
BumpInTheNight: MithrandirBooga: RexTalionis: Oh, meh. Dice is going to cock it up.You say that as if there's anything worthwhile on those sites to begin with. Slashdot has been such an incredible joke for the past decade it's amazing it still exists.You forgot to shoehorn a redmond bash into that review, that's the true slashdot way.With quality articles like "Microsoft has issued a security advisory with advice on how to patch a Internet Explorer zero-day vulnerability recently spotted being exploited in the wild by attackers that might be the same ones that are behind the Nitro attacks. News that there is a previously unknown Internet Explorer vulnerability that is actively being misused in the wild by attackers that are believed to be the same ones that are behind the Nitro attacks has reverberated all over the Internet yesterday."...I can see why dice.com would be interested in buying out their elderly neighbor and moving it off to the group home.

19 Kilo: Uzzah:Kuro5shin leader Rusty states that there are 7000 users of his crappy site.Holy hell. My old K5 login still works. I haven't been on that site in probably 8 or 10 years.It still sucks too!
GoldSpider: The "Moon": A Ridiculous Liberal MythIt amazes me that so many allegedly "educated" people have fallen so quickly and so hard for a fraudulent fabrication of such laughable proportions. The very idea that a gigantic ball of rock happens to orbit our planet, showing itself in neat, four-week cycles -- with the same side facing us all the time -- is ludicrous. Furthermore, it is an insult to common sense and a damnable affront to intellectual honesty and integrity. That people actually believe it is evidence that the liberals have wrested the last vestiges of control of our public school system from decent, God-fearing Americans (as if any further evidence was needed! Daddy's Roommate? God Almighty!)Documentaries such as Enemy of the State have accurately portrayed the elaborate, byzantine network of surveillance satellites that the liberals have sent into space to spy on law-abiding Americans. Equipped with technology developed by Handgun Control, Inc., these satellites have the ability to detect firearms from hundreds of kilometers up. That's right, neighbors .. the next time you're out in the backyard exercising your Second Amendment rights, the liberals will see it! These satellites are sensitive enough to tell the difference between a Colt .45 and a .38 Special! And when they detect you with a firearm, their computers cross-reference the address to figure out your name, and then an enormous database housed at Berkeley is updated with information about you.Of course, this all works fine during the day, but what about at night? Even the liberals can't control the rotation of the Earth to prevent nightfall from setting in (only Joshua was able to ask for that particular favor!) That's where the "moon" comes in. Powered by nuclear reactors, the "moon" is nothing more than an enormous balloon, emitting trillions of candlepower of gun-revealing light. Piloted by key members of the liberal community, the "moon" is strategically moved across the country, pointing o ...

clovis69: I knew Slashdot was dead when I was talking to CmdrTaco over on Reddit last month.
CognaciousThunk: Looking at my Slashdot acct... 6 digit number, was on this site since, oh, 2001. But lately, can't say it has been that relevant. I would hope that the past content is saved for future reference.
Impasse: Slashdot, website, dead at 55
GWSuperfan: I *will* be sad to see SourceForge go away.Oh Well, I guess there's always Google Code Github.
A long, long time agoI can still rememberHow the trollers used to make me smileAnd I knew if I had to boastThat I could try to get BoobiesAnd maybe I'd be happy for a whileBut moderators made me shiverWith every minus they'd deliverDoS scripts couldn't stop itThey scored them all "Offtopic"I know that it's cheap crack they smokeAnd meta-moderation's brokeAt first I thought it was a jokeThe day that trolltalk died-- Chorus --Bye, bye, MEEPTy, OOG, and Grits guyDrove the Cruiser like some loser who starts posts with a *sigh*Those Steve Woston posts that we all knew were a lieWonder what became of girls petrified?What became of girls petrified?--Did you write a bunch of Perl?And did it make you want to hurlFeces at the Wall?Can you believe these lame-ass polls?Do you post big stretched-out assholes?Can you make the goatse.cx link not show?Well I know you think that Siggy suckedWill the real Bruce Perens please stand up?The bots don't have a clue.Man, I dig those trolls from Shoe!I was a rabid Free Speech advocateWith a Red Hat T-shirt and a Free Beer gutBought my Sony laptop working Pizza HutThe day that trolltalk died-- Chorus --It's been two years since the IPOAnd LNUX sinks to all-time lowsBut that's not how it used to beWhen Spiral showed how it was doneTrolling as Jon EriksonWho worked for NPO TechnologiesOh and while they tried to filter postsSomebody rooted Slashdot's host"Crack Slashdot?

Happy Hours: Slashdot used to be cool.I really do like their moderation system, but if I had mod points, I'd vote this shiat down.
MithrandirBooga: Happy Hours: Slashdot used to be cool.I really do like their moderation system, but if I had mod points, I'd vote this shiat down.Their moderation system is crap. It allows one of the worst cases of groupthink to flounderflourish on the net. Any single comment pointing out how their article bashing MS might not be entirely true gets you downmodded into oblivion, then trolls follow every single post you make for weeks afterwards and spitefully downmod those too. Those people are animals who have pushed all the sane commenters away a long time ago.
