Dolphinzilla writes: According to and many other web sources, Northrop Grumman Corporation agreed on July 5 to increase its stake in Burt Rutan's Scaled Composites — designers of Space Ship One, Proteus, and whole lot of other unusal aircraft — from 40 percent to 100 percent

Submission + - Slashdot Content Filter

Dolphinzilla writes: As I was perusing Slashdot this morning it occurred to me how absolutely sick I am of reading about censorship, the RIAA, politics, and the war on this venue, I realize that a large portion of Slashdot readers like this and enjoy the back and forth chatter that it generates. But I doubt I am the only one who is tired of the constant deluge from all forms of media. My main reason for subscribing to Slashdot is for the technical/science content — so here is my thought — how about the Slashdot guru's give us the ability to filter the Main page content thus allowing us to only see the types of stories that we want to see ? Would any other Slashdot readers use this feature ?
