---Posting Rules----------------------------------------------
1. Stay on topic.
2. Don't flame people.
3. Don't be a potty mouth.

None of these are concrete black & white issues, but we reserve
the right to delete comments that violate them. We're not willing
to get sued over what you post. And frankly, we don't want Slashdot
to degenerate to what usenet usually is like. So don't do stupid things
like 'first comment' crap.

--- FAQs-------------------------------------------------------
1. Why did you delete my comment?
      A. See the rules above.
2. Why didn't my comment appear?
      A. Have you waited a couple minutes? If so, contact
3. Why didn't you post my story/why did someone else get
      credit for my story?
      A. Sorry, we get hundreds of submissions a day and
      sometimes we just can't post everything. And believe
      it or not, you might not have been the first one to
      submit story X.
