Journal Journal: Teh banninated, eh? 1

Date: Tue, 12 Apr 2005 15:45:40 -0400 (EDT)
From: theantix
Subject: banned, eh?

"Due to excessive bad posting from this IP or Subnet, comment posting has
temporarily been disabled. If it's you, consider this a chance to sit in the
timeout corner . If it's someone else, this is a chance to hunt them down.
If you think this is unfair, please email with your

No offense, but I've been a user for slashdot for a long time, but is this
what it's come to now? I correct a post that says that IronPython was made
incompatible with Microsoft and link to the _author_ of the key book on Mono
backing me up. Then I challenge a person who has repeatedly spammed every
list he can get ahold of with his "autopackage" idea despite being rejected
by several leading distributions on their respective mailing lists. And for
that I'm banned from posting to slashdot for "excessive bad posting"?

I mean fine, it's not a big deal, and I'll live just fine without it. I'm
shocked that this site has become so hostile to ideas... if you don't want
me anymore I'm fine by that. Gotta question the direction you're taking the
site in though -- but I respect that you no long want my comments and I'll
refrain from posting there in the future. Have a nice day and all that.

Journal Journal: K5 is still down

I'm not very happy about it, but Slashdot is the best alternative that I know of. Is it odd that a website going down causes me grief? I'm hoping that the data is recoverable... I would hate to lose my articles forever (I might have old copies somewhere).

I am still quite frustrated with the lack of quality on /. I've been around for a couple of years (I have an older uid but I don't like the nick) and the quality has really declined, I know that's stating the obvious but I'm ranting so you can't bloody stop me. Michael really, really, really sucks. That being said, he is being much better in the past few days. Oh well. Back to work.
