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.
