Submission + - Salon Calls Out Slashdot

An anonymous reader writes: Andrew Leonard's reactions to slashdot firehouse marketing email:

"My first impulse is to be charitable: Slashdot's geeks have done some pioneering work enabling user-generated content aggregation, and kudos to them if they keep advancing the state of the art (although one does wonder how much of this is a response to the success of the newer generation of user-driven content services such as digg.) But when I read the following on-message marketing spiel from Executive Editor Jeff "Hemos" Bates, "It represents a next generation approach to content aggregation that allows for increased user participation and feedback," I also had to wince. Are we all doomed to become the very thing we started out mocking?" /index.html
