That said, I want to ask Dice why they are so eager to kill off Slashdot.
Is there a secret buyer somewhere waiting to grab this domain, Dice ? Just tell us. There are those amongst us who can afford to pay for the domain. What we want is to have a Slashdot that we know, that we can use, that we can continue to share information with all others.
Please stop all your destructive plans for Slashdot, Dice.
