Interesting Slashdot Usernames: Slash on the Dot

793528 (793528) writes | more than 8 years ago

User Journal 4

I haven't written in a while, so I thought I'd do a cool one today. This journal entry is all about users who made it difficult to view their user page. Clicking on a regular link of their name will take you to Slashdot's 404 page. The reason is that each name has a forward slash in it, which makes it into a non-existent URL. I believe Slashdot must have changed its username filter because all of the names have fairly low UIDs.

I found too many of these to list in one journal, so I'll just throw out some that I think are interesting. Here they are in UID order (with links that will actually work):

Did I miss any that you think are cool? Post it and spread the love.

Cute comments overall. Much better than my [slashdot.org] attempt at something similar.

Why is a raven like a writing desk?

A Carollinian?

I suppose NEXT, either of you will do a JE on people who have aliases that may be found in Corporate Business? :)

Thanks for the compliment, and the link from your journal. I've wondered how many people end up even seeing my journal entries, considering most people don't know how to see a chronological list of all journal entries [slashdot.org] . I was actually surprised to see a reply so long after the entry was created, but I'll take what I can get. :)

I actually regularly peruse the recently created JE list. I just happened to be away for a bit and didn;t have time to check. :)

NP.

I ain't that famous, but i found your JE interesting and i hadn't posted anything in a while, so it all worked out. :)
