There are ~12 million bitcoins in existence. 1 million of those belong to a single entity, with another large chunk divided among a few related entities.

It seems ridiculous to expect stability when a single person has the ability to destroy the entire bitcoin economy, probably multiple times over.

Yeah, I know. I've been posting here under various accounts for 10+ years.

It seems like the general slashdot method of operation is to turn accidental success into intentional failure.

I imagine they will port it to Drupal eventually, but we need a really strong 10/10 book on it first and Packt hasn't released it yet.

Are there a lot of people out there who have just been chomping at the bit to change the slashdot logo?

How about fixing some of the horribly out of date and broken website code instead? Just for one day. In October!

Maybe make a mobile version of the site that is more than barely functional? For one day! In October!

The specific parts I disagreed with are the parts where the title says the article is going to be a review of a video game, and the content of the article is actually meandering pseudo-intellectual musings on Nintendo's game release strategy by some random guy on the internet.

I thought that was pretty clear from my original post.
