+ - Alternatives to Slashdot post beta? 8

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "Like many Slashdotters, I intend to stop visiting Slashdot after the beta changeover. After years of steady decline in the quality of discussions here, the beta will be the last straw. What sites alternative to Slashdot have others found? The best I have found has been arstechnica.com, but it has been a while since I've looked for tech discussion sites."

This is nothing new, as past style changes have had similar effects. However, this pass there are significant usability changes: A narrower read pane, limited moderation filtering, and several color/size/font adjustments. BETA implies not yet complete, so taking that cue — please list your specific, detailed opinoins, one per comment, and let's use the best part of slashdot (the moderation system) to raise the attention to these. Change can be jarring, but let's focus on the true usability differences with the new style."

It's a simple deal: She gets to keep her vast country-ruling powers, on condition she never uses them.

Power that can never be used is only imaginary power. It's like a car salesman saying "this expensive sports car now belongs to you, but you are not allowed to touch it or get inside it, and it will always remain here".

Actually, people count from zero without realizing it, in my opinion. See how they count:

1, 2, 3, 4, ...

Each number actually represents a change of state. The initial state is zero. When people say "1", it means they change state from zero to one. So they actually count from zero.

You are in a maze of little twisting passages, all alike.
