You must be new here. Welcome to Slashdot.org where you can get news of many varieties. Some is stale dated, some is duplicated but it's all kinda interesting to talk about and that is why most of us like it here.

Because even if the news is old, the discussion at Slashdot is always new! (well at least the higher rated discussions)

The media conglomerate run by Rupert Murdoch has poured enormous resources into the Internet during the last year. It acquired social-networking pioneer MySpace.com last year for $580 million.'"

Not sure really, but I'm guessing that some of my posts have attracted negative attention.
