The most annoying thing to me on Slashdot is making a top-level reply. When you are replying to a comment, the form shows the comment you are replying to. When you are making a top-level reply, the form shows nothing. I can almost understand not showing the article blurb since it's usually short and concise, but sometimes I need to reference somebody's journal entry while I'm replying to it, either to correct / clarify something or just to re-read something. I don't frequent many message boards, but I can't think of another system that behaves this way. It's really annoying having to keep an extra window open just so you can reference the material to which you are replying.
