Submission + - Is anyone else offended by the 'sugar daddy dating' banner ads? 8

jdogalt writes: I'm honestly just curious to see a comment thread on this one- Are others here as offended as I am by the lack of advertising discretion that seems to have led to a massive influx of the ads with the following text — "Establshed Men. Sugar daddy dating. Where beautiful girls and successful men meet.". Now, I'm not interested the social reality, but rather I'd just like slashdot, for slashdot's sake, to have better taste in ads. I'd be less offended if the quote was a bit more balanced as '/successful men/succuessful boys/".

Submission + - PokerTH (GPL) releases v0.8.1 w/ ranking system (

jdogalt writes: A few weeks ago the fine folks developing PokerTH, a GPL non-gambling online poker system, released v0.8 with the major new feature of a persistent ranking system. While I had used the previous versions for occasional interstate family poker, the new ranking system really made playing strangers competitive and therefore addictive over the long term. Of course now, after achieving rank #1 (JGalt) out of 20,000 accounts, I think I need a little more competition. So c'mon GPL zealots, let's shuffle up and deal!

Submission + - What do the nerds think of Mukasey for U.S. A.G.?

jdogalt writes: I for one would like to see what interesting comments and research slashdotters can provide regarding the potential successor to the esteemed position most recently held by the likes of Alberto "don't recall" Gonzolez, and John "couldn't beat a dead-guy in an election" Ashcroft.

So, do you think this guy is going to step up to the plate, and bring the real worst criminals in this country to justice? Or is he just going to make things even worse than those other two have?
