Journal Journal: So long, slashdot 5

This account will be inactive starting today, May 22 2011.
Slashdot has gained over a million new users since I joined a few years ago, and those users include so many wannabes, trolls, and astroturfers. Slashdot has gone from being a place with many knowledgeable regulars to a place where trolling, "snarkiness", fanbois, and haters are together the majority, all but drowning out the voices of the more knowledgeable and serious.

It was good for awhile, but it's over for me now. So long, slashdot! Thanks for the memories...

Edit 03312012:
Wellp, it's been just a bit less than a year since I last logged in to slashdot. Today I came back out of boredom and curiosity. So, am I back? We'll see...
