It reminds me of the one of the finest comments I ever read on here, from joss:

"If the kind of drag and drop stuff you are proposing was a better mechanism for creating complex programs than languages, then we wouldnt use languages to communicate with each other. Instead we would push a bunch of colored blocks around and drag string between them. I don't think we're going to start doing that anytime soon either."

"I'm presented with the message 'you have 15 moderator points — use them or lose them' but when I try to moderate a discussion there's no "moderate" button available. I also cannot type a comma into a slashdot text box without having it appear as a ;. Screw this. I'm going to go look at porn.", he reports."

That's a pretty neat idea.. I'd like to help him but I don't really have the chops. How would you go about getting this off the ground ? Can any of the Slashdot crowd help him out ?"

I personally challenge David and Nick to sit down with some quality organic ganja, a vaporizer, and a copy of Peter Tosh's 'Legalize It' and leave the room without having firmly decided to end the ridiculous persecution of otherwise law-abiding people who wish to exercise what is basically a consumer preference.

May the bluebird of happiness twiddle your bits.
