I remember watching Kuro5hin collapse and die because of some pig-headed decisions. I never imagined slashdot's blaze would be this much more fiery.
I have been on slashdot for almost 15 years (was anonymous the first few years). It has been a fun ride.
The initial silence of Dice, and then the market-speak of "Timothy" has been astounding. It's truly tragic what I have witnessed over the last two days.
This has convinced me that my hours can be better spent elsewhere. With this final message I bid farewell to my favorite website for the last 15 years.
I make a prediction, and I hope I'm wrong: with the Dice/Timothy attitude, in 6 months slashdot will be no more.
