Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
I'm sure there are all sorts of expensive, technical solutions to this problem
With the language the same in every single post, why doesn't slashdot just filter this out to the garbage before it gets posted.
Yes, because no-one would change a word or two in their post or do variations on the spelling. Yay, we get to have another lameness-filter style arms race, that'll improve the quality of the posts.
Maybe we should have a "-1 hate crime" mod, and the overlords can determine what to do with it. As it is, I only see myself or other mods pushing it down, thus wasting one of my mod points whereas I can be modding someone "+1 interesting" instead.
Maybe you should grow a skin and realize that you can't win this kind of pissing contest with griefers.
Seriously, just ignore it.
This very moment, some guy in his mom's basement has his pants down fwapping away to your outrage. You've provided motivation for gods know how many more cut'n'paste trolls, because you provided the kind of hysterical reaction they find so entertaining.
Good job, internet tough guy.
With a small amount of work you can post from a different IP address every time.
Or it might be a dozen different losers cutting and pasting the same thing.
BTW, a reaction like yours will keep them motivated and posting, thanks ever so much.
Anyone with your impeccable cool credentials probably doesn't buy their coffee at a chain like Tim Horton's anyway, so they're not out anything.
Skateboards leave marks when they slide. Very hard to clean off.
I doubt it, they don't want to repel the "olds".
A local coffee shop has done this for years. They're a little too close to the high school for comfort, so they installed a speaker outside playing classical/light jazz.
The people who actually want to buy coffee don't mind the music, and now they don't have to elbow their way thru clumps of teenagers standing in front of the door.
I'm not so happy about using it in detention, but I'm sure if I was a high school teacher I'd flip out and strangled someone on the first week, so I probably shouldn't throw stones.
WTF does Norton have to do with Novell?
Looks like someone at google has noticed and is cleaning their search results. Here's one from the images.google search, which now has been "reported as an attack page".
No, but your browser can show fake dialog boxes and try to trick you into downloading and installing an executable.
They don't want to deny the West our freedoms, they want to pester and harass and annoy us so that we [get out of %country1%|stop supporting %country2%] or whatever.
The US didn't leave Vietnam because they ran out of young, able-bodied men to send over, they left because they decided it wasn't worth the hassle. More hassle == Yankee Go Home.
I can think of a zillion things to hit just flying by line of sight.
You could target oil tankers, hell even oil refineries.
What's the propaganda value of head-shotting the statue of liberty?
And we all know how well that turned out for Ed...
