Comment Re:Why? (Score 1) 2219

I quit reading Huffington Post because they require a facebook login with real names. I quit reading Kotaku and io9 because my finger got tired of endlessly scrolling past all the pictures for the one piece of text on the page. Kotaku and io9 both have major issues now that everyone can post whatever they want, regardless if it's on topic or not, but that's a different situation. I don't want to leave /. as well, but I took a look at the new beta site and my eyes hurt trying to keep up with all the busy. It looks like they are trying to copy the look that Gawker pushed out to all their sites. I don't see what's wrong with the classic. At very least, if everyone is going to be forced onto the new system, they should give people the option to keep the layout as it is through their profile.

Comment US Secret Service in Canada? (Score 1) 398

I'm really surprised that no one has mentioned this yet. Maybe I missed something, but since when does the US Secret Service have jurisdiction in Canada? I would have thought that the RCMP would have confiscated the press and turned the bills over to the Secret Service. (Btw -- I'm an American asking this...)
