Have people decided on a specific purpose in joining that Social Network or is it Just the lack of something to do?

The more developments the more security issues and yet again another security patch. I therefore wanted to ask users what you really feel about this? It seems like a dog chasing it's tail and there is no end in sight.
Do you now also think that coders/developers are being manipulated by marketing and advertisers to try and sell you something more (Part with your cash).
The question is do I feel alone in this respect? or is simplicity the best after all. Hell me landed men on the Moon with less than 2MB of RAM!

Is there any alternative out there? I remember Nutch that was "Crushed by big search engines". Nothing is safe anymore and my generation feels just like turning off the internet altogether."

Those people writing a dissertation for a Ph.D need Credit! Do you not agree that is would be incredibly interesting for dash slot to have a section like this beyond education so we can all learn idea's against convention of the normal idiot on the street?

I have a typewriter, but what are you going to miss?
I suppose for those nostalgic people, there are things you do not miss, like a monitor and keyboard, with a typewriter you have them all rolled into one. The question is; Is this a sad day for writers?"

Sometimes I find slashdot addictive and it goes through phases like a Blue Moon. Every now and again you get some really intelligent person that cannot be from planet Earth who is too smart for their own good; but makes a truly logical comment, makes me laugh and I am addicted again.
The question is simple how do you walk away? I know I am going to get some flack for this however your will brighten up my day!"
