Submission + - Slashdot to Fix Headlines

David Rolfe writes: "After threads like this one and its forerunners in similarly affected stories, Slashdot editors have agreed to stop accepting kiddie slang in headlines. This move was heralded by the vast, silent majority of Slashdot who don't have time for this sort of childish crap. CmdrTaco was overheard saying, 'I know I'm a [World of Warcraft] addict — like many of you — but I will nip this in the bud before we have headlines containing ZOMGWTFBBQ!!~. This is not Digg and I'd like to keep it that way.'"

Work expands to fill the time available. -- Cyril Northcote Parkinson, "The Economist", 1955
