Journal Journal: Changin' ways of Slashdot 2

Anyone care to comment on why people post "Slashdot has gone down hill" comments so often? I don't miss much about the "old" slashdot - the trolls, page-wideners, links that misled... OK, once /. felt more like an exclusive club than it does now, but that feeling didn't last long.

Does anybody really miss the old days enough to remind me what I'm missing? I did take a pretty long hiatus...

Journal Journal: Enough is enough

I saw a post today from a user who has "been with slashdot from the first days" (with a low enough userid to make his assertions possible) stating that he's fed up with the editors of slashdot and will never read it again.

And he's "moving" to Digg


All self-important gits are hereby invited to bugger off. If you don't like this site, don't read it.

There, now I feel better - isn't that what journals are for?

Journal Journal: Different points of view

On my old account I managed to get modded out of existance for listing the "wrong" people as friends - kept me off /. (except as a lurker) for months.

Folks - I like to see different points of view, and use "friends" to bump these viewpoints up onto the radar so I can....

Journal Journal: Today was different

Logged on today to find that someone had listed me as a "friend" - the first one on this account. I had an account years ago, when I was younger and more flame-prone (no, I'm not telling which one). Time and a couple of kids do mellow one. So now, I am a old-style realist, softer around the edges (thus the ID). No foes yet (had many on the old account), far fewer friends as well. Life lends perspective...
