more scorched-earth activity like doxxing and death threats against people who had the temerity to voice an opinion that someone didn't like

The attitude that women are worse than men means that men being more like women makes them an object of derision
Your bias towards women is showing, even if you don't consciously realize that you have it. Men acting like women or being accused of acting like women is a form of derision. Women acting like men or being accused of acting like men is a form of derision. Compassion is positive in women, and negative in men. Assertiveness is positive in men, and negative in women. There is no attitude that women are worse than men. There is no attitude that men are worse than women.

Slashdot Beta is a trend-following attempt to give Slashdot a fresh look, an approach that has led to less space for text and an abandonment of the traditional Slashdot look. Much worse than that, Slashdot Beta fundamentally breaks the classic Slashdot discussion and moderation system.
If you haven't seen Slashdot Beta already, open this in a new tab. After seeing that, click here to return to classic Slashdot.
We should boycott stories and only discuss the abomination that is Slashdot Beta until Dice abandons the project.
We should boycott slashdot entirely during the week of Feb 10 to Feb 17 as part of the wider slashcott
Moderators — only spend mod points on comments that discuss Beta
Commentors — only discuss Beta
