Chacham's Journal: Slashdot Habits: No front-page reads in two months, JE slow. 9

Journal by Chacham

Well, it's been a couple months since i have read the front page, and i find that i no longer have any interest either. I still like the JEs, however, but the interesting ones are few and far between. Methinks i will be checking my messages less often, but that is just a thought.

Some potty-mouth has been using my handle as the subject of his comments. I find it both amusing and ironic. I wish my followers were better trained.

    Some potty-mouth has been using my handle as the subject of his comments.

    Well, I could have been derivative (some other barnyard onomatopeia), but I thought it more fitting to directly reference the source. Credit where credit's due and all that.

    Good, good.

    I wish my followers were better trained.

    Better open up a school then, otherwise you pays your money and you takes your chances...

      Problem is, it make searching for my own name [slashdot.org] difficult.
      • Aw, dude, that ain't fair. If I'm going to the dock, I'll be bringing Slashdot along as my co-defendant.

        Still, it's a valid and earnest request. Any suggestions for a replacement? Perhaps Moo-urns?

          Heh.

          If I'm going to the dock, I'll be bringing Slashdot along as my co-defendant.

          Care to bet on that? Can you imagine bringing all slashdot there? The courtroom would be cleared before you could say "first post".

          Still, it's a valid and earnest request.

          Thank you. I hope i am not insulting you when i say that i am suprised. But it would be much appreciated.

          Any suggestions for a replacement? Perhaps Moo-urns?

          Well, when i chose my useless comment title [slashdot.org], i chose my favorite word [slashdot.org]. Mayhap

    I still scan the headlines, but it is all pretty predictable -- selected flamebait articles (or spun to be*), to froth up the juvenile and the loony. And we all know what topics and slants on them will work up the masses here.

    *I'm seeing people complaining in the discussions that the (flamebait) summaries don't match the articles.
  • I get the main page over in Google reader, where the obvious marketing pitchiness is even more painfully apparent.
    Oh, but it's Tuesday; I may need to indulge my Burma Shave troll... ;)
