Journal Journal: slashdot moderation sucks

This thread proves why slashdot moderation system sucks. I'll check again tomorrow, but the top comments moderated "insightful" (like this, or this) are totally off topic, and the posters failed to understand the meaning of the original, article (it is doubtful whether they read it). I think /. coders need to figure something out. Perhaps present comments randomly to moderators, or newest first (I know this has been proposed in the past but why not try again?). I don't have any better idea.


Journal Journal: Forget slash

Once upon a time I was interested in slash. I waited and waited until I got ahold of understanding how to install it. I waited so much that I came across squishdot/zope (which sucked) and postnuke. I installed postnuke in a breeze in 2 different os's. I checked dozens of addons. I admired postnuke's internationalization features (the slash team doesn't care about that). The bottom line:
choose postnuke. choose life.
