Journal: Slashdot is weird

Journal by Disoculated

Today I made two comments. One, an off the cuff counter rant and the other a well thought out comment with supporting URLs.

The off the cuff rant got some very good counter comments and 3 karma points. I mean, it was a sitting duck for AC's to tear to shreds, since I didn't have any more supporting information than the original rant, but why the karma?.

Oddly, the well thought out comment has no replies, and no karma bonuses.

I guess I should just ignore the moderation system. It's probably for the best.

Ya know, it's really kind of daunting when you sit down at home and try to run your own slash site. I'd thought it would be somewhat simple and blog-like, but it's really a lot more involved than that.

I think what's really galling is now being on the other side of the membership. Hearing complaints and handling requests. It's amazing how something I would have thought would be trivial to do for a site admin is really an amazing pain in the ass.

Ah well, if anyone bothers to stop by and read it, here it is. Tell me what you think!

It appears that PL/I (and its dialects) is, or will be, the most widely used higher level language for systems programming. -- J. Sammet
