+ - How Open Source is Slashdot? 3

HikingStick writes "I'm not sure if you've been asked this before, but is the code behind Slashdot proprietary or open source? From reviewing the copyright statement, it is clear that the Slashdot page design and non-user-generated content are owned by Geeknet, Inc. I was just wondering if the code that drives the message board, the moderation system, and the other features we know as Slashdot are open- or closed-source.

If open, I'd love to utilize the framework as part of an Intranet site I'm working on. If not open, why not?"
