chasd00: everyone complained just as much the last time it was re-designed. Whining and impotent nerd rage is a slashdot specialty.

Completely untrue (except for the second sentence). There was biatching and complaining and constructive criticism, but nothing like the current user base revolt, boycott/protest, and thread pollution by long time members. This is probably the end of the site.

kroonermanblack: BumpInTheNight: Zel: Princess Ryans Knickers: Beta design way easier on the eyes than the old one.

Unless you wanted to read a lot of text, then all that whitespace is a detriment. I bought big monitors so I could read a lot of text, not so marketing jerks can fill it with ads.

Slashdot links have digressed to three major genres:  "Everyone should go into Computer Science, except women!" Click bait, "No one should ever pay for software, as an over paid developer I see no downsides to this cunning plan!" type keyboard hippieism or press releases for products and unsustainable SanFran start-ups thinly veiled as news.

So, basically Fark but stupider? At least fark has flavors of crap with nuts, or corn, or sometimes pretty color!

And boobies, thank god for the boobies/NSFW links
