Submission + - Caching?

fishdan writes: I've seen (as has everyone else) about a million sites go down under the weight of the slashdot effect. Is there some reason why we don't post the links for the stories as coral cached links? I know the sites might want the traffic, but most of them can't handle it, and the good ones will retain their customers anyway. Isn't it time to stop destroying the web one site at a time?
