The summary and comments often focus on what Jake Edge said where in fact, Edge is summarising what Jacob Kaplan-Moss said at a conference. The merits of the points made during the presentation can be discussed on their own but there seems to be a lot of vitriol aimed at Edge that has no basis in either fact or logic. Aside from an inaccurate summary, it's also sad to note that slashdot used a "subscriber link" feature which was meant to be used by a paid subscriber to share an article with a small number of people until it was free a week later. The feature was not intended for sharing with the entire audience of slashdot. That is just poor form.
