here's no doubt that the Slashdot community is one of the most thoughtful, intelligent, and prolific communities on the web.

You must be new here.

The really sad thing is that it used to be so. I've been here since the beginning, though I didn't sign up for an ID immediately. This used to be the go to site for news for nerds and stuff that matters. Not only has the level of discourse dropped precipitously but the quality of content has as well. Most 'breaking news' stories that I see here are ones I saw days ago on other sites. The editors are a joke and do not even bother to try editing anything. I'm willing to give the new owners the benefit of the doubt, but I really can't see how they can fix any of this.

"As a leading digital media company, we publish hundreds of popular web sites and provide advertising solutions for multiple industries such as travel & tourism, telecommunications, personal finance, credit, business products and more."

I'm not sure if that is good or bad, but I think we can probably expect more ads.

They should be phasing those out regardless. Netscreen devices are EOL. Too many people are still using them. I know I have actively encouraged clients to ditch them. Unfortunately the Juniper SRX firewalls are crap, at least the low end/branch ones. The big iron is alright but still doesn't compare feature wise to Check Point, Palo Alto, Fortinet, etc.

Among many ignored assumptions, did this post take into account the carbon emissions of building such a grid?

Construction equipment doesn't run on lithium batteries.

While you're correct, the long term benefits would most likely more than make up for it. This kind of massive infrastructure project also helps the economy; another side benefit.
