As an avid
/. reader for years I'm extremely disappointed in where this site is headed. It is like digg all over again, except /. has been the best source of information and level-headed discussion on the internet long before digg or reddit ever existed. Put simply, for all it's flaws /. is still the only site of its kind and putting through this shoddy redesign is going to kill the site. I have to agree with other users that it almost seems like it is your intention. The only consolation I will have is that the Japanese slashdot.jp will still be around after this site collapses.
