I just submitted a story to Slashdot and within 5 minutes it had been refused. Now, I'm not trying to say that it shouldn't have been refused, I'm just trying to say that that is a major ego blow when your story can be found by an editor, read, and deemed unworthy all in the time it takes you to check the homepage to see if your story is there (and read up on a couple of interesting stories that did make it). I value efficiency as much as the next nerd, but that was cold. And now, I'm off to go see what did make it onto the homepage.
