Will soon be hosted at AltSlashdot.org or a site linked through that domain.

It will be for the Nerds, by the Nerds, focusing on the Stuff That Really Matters: The community that makes the comments the best part of Slashdot.

The name will change to avoid any trademark problems.

Some have suggested encouraging Bruce Perens to resurrect Technocrat.net for the third time. With all due respect to Bruce, the problem with that is he has shown he is not a reliable host. He has twice deleted that site, the second time without warning. I don't think we want to get burned a third time.

Before I get slammed, let me correct myself: He did shut it down due to slow traffic first time around, though he blamed his own lack of tine and also refused to allow others to carry it forward. https://web.archive.org/web/20... Second time he blamed low traffic and "Certain elements of the community that developed here, unfortunately, creep me out". https://web.archive.org/web/20... Still, I don't think he can be trusted a third time to not just shut it down when he feels like it.

That's what he says, but it's not the truth. I was on it the first time he shut it down. When that happened, he posted on the replacement page that he didn't like the direction the discussions were going (there was no moderation or meta-moderation and some debates got heated).

That subjective, unilateral, unannounced decision to take his ball and bat and go home is why I didn't participate the second time around.

Because Bruce has shown he is an unreliable host for a tech site.

He has twice started that site and twice deleted it without warning, taking all the content and comments offline with no way to recover them.

Bruce has done great things for the Libre Software community, but hosting a tech site is not one of his brighter moments.

+ - CowboyNeal Locked In Basement For Opposing Slashdot Beta-> 23

Robotron23 (832528) writes "Slashdot's finest editor to date has been mercilessly locked in a basement filled with fuzzy dice Dice created to furnish Google's self-driving cars. Screaming, followed by sounds of frenzied masturbation, have been reported from the subterranean dungeon. "There's no way enough ejaculatory fluid is getting sprayed on our dice to make us care about this deluded protestor's opinion." a Dice executive commented earlier. Former Slashdot owner turned professional millionaire Robert Malda, expressed support: "No porn. More dice than a casino. Lame.""
