Journal: Slashdot Posting

Journal by SirCyn
Why is it that some people can post stories about sctratchin thier butt, and it gest on the front page of Slashdot? But people in the know find a breaking story and can't get it on slashdot.

I found a good story yesterday. One that many people would probably want to read about. I posted it. REJECTED. Why am I not suprised?

I've never had a story posted. I only submit when I find something new and interesting. Much more interesting that someone scratching their butt.

Alas, I tried again. Maybe my original write-up wasn't all that good. I do write better than most (in my opinion anyway). So maybe a second try is in order. A much better write-up, with additional links (like you couldn't find it all before), and a bit more descriptive. I got it all just perfect. Submitted it. Rejected, again.

Now I am a bit suprised. Mostly I am angered. Zonk shot down both. Maybe I'll try again when he's not posting. CmdrTaco will surely post it, he posts anything and everything; even if it is a dupe that's still on the front page.

Well I feel a bit better now that I bashed the posters a bit. What slashdot really needs is a feedback method. I wonder many times if the posters read slashdot at all, if they read any of the comments. I doubt it. I very much doubt it.

Is it possible that software is not like anything else, that it is meant to be discarded: that the whole point is to always see it as a soap bubble?

Working...
