On February 5, 2014, Slashdot announced through a javascript popup that they are starting to "move in to" the new Slashdot Beta design. Slashdot Beta is a trend-following attempt to give Slashdot a fresh look, an approach that has led to less space for text and an abandonment of the traditional Slashdot look. Much worse than that, Slashdot Beta fundamentally breaks the classic Slashdot discussion and moderation system.

If you haven't seen Slashdot Beta already, open this in a new tab. After seeing that, click here to return to classic Slashdot.

We should boycott stories and only discuss the abomination that is Slashdot Beta until Dice abandons the project.
We should boycott slashdot entirely during the week of Feb 10 to Feb 17 as part of the wider slashcott

Moderators - only spend mod points on comments that discuss Beta
Commentors - only discuss Beta
http://slashdot.org/recent - Vote up the Fuck Beta stories

Keep this up for a few days and we may finally get the PHBs attention.

I also remember telling people over and over how this was going to be a huge loss since GM would never be able to pay it back and every liberal democrat crawled out from under every rock saying that this was going to be a great profit and win. NOW ... now its "Oh, we never meant to make a profit." Yeah, just like if I liked my health care / doctor I could keep it. Just wait till the 2014 elections ...

From the summary: $49.5-billion bailout of the automaker begun in late 2008 under former President George W. Bush.

Unless you know a lot of liberal democrats that were GW Bush fans...

Contaminated well water is used for drinking water for nearby cities and towns. There have been over 1,000 documented cases of water contamination next to areas of gas drilling as well as cases of sensory, respiratory, and neurological damage due to ingested contaminated water.

Please provide a citation to a single case of groundwater contamination shown to be a result of fracking.
