The time has come to say goodbye to Slashdot. Slashdot and I had a good run together but, as all too often happens with relationships, we've grown apart.
In this case, that's thanks mainly to the changes in the meta-moderation system that once kept rampant trolling and fanboy-ism in check. No longer, however; now the various fanboys--MS, Apple, Android, Freetards--are allowed to run rampant with impunity. The once vibrant debates no longer exist, replaced by mere name calling. I'm afraid that the Greater Internet Fuckwad Theory has been proven once again. I get enough of that in my real life, I don't need it online too.
So long, Slashdot, and good luck. I'll drop by once in a while to see how you're fairing.
