I have recently returned to /. after a 7year or so absence and was just wondering what has happening to the site I used to love so much because it provided genuine, newsworthy, information and discussions.
Since I've been back, it appears that 50% of the articles are posted purely to allow one group of people or the other to post about how much they hate this company or that product, rather than actually providing logical, reasoned information and justification.
I know, who am I to be a judge? My Karma rating on my original account ('Tigger's Pet' 130655) is 'Terrible' - which is why I end up creating a new account so I can actually post more than twice in a 24 hour period - mainly because I've been away for so long and everything I now post automatically attracts a score of '-1', which means that many mods won't even read it, so I can't get it back up - but hey, I'm still entitled to my opinion.
