Journal kruhft's Journal: Front Page Change

So it seems that Slashdot has decided to remove the number of comments/threshold comments from stories on the front page. This used to be a good barometer of how popular the story was before clicking on it to go through to the comments. Now it seems that the clicks are more important than showing the popularity. This is probably a way to increase ad impressions and to even out the pageviews on the stories. We'll see if it sticks around.

This discussion has been archived. No new comments can be posted.
