The saddest thing about Slashdot is that most of the people who post comments think their comments are important. Obviously, they decided to write that comment rather than doing something more useful with their time like coding or reading a book.
Here's a tip, folks: if you aren't an expert in the field in question, you'd probably do best to not comment at all.
Slashdot is like a poker game with 5000 people playing. The chances the someone out there has a hand that can beat your three Aces are very, very high.
