These shirts are neither free as in beer, nor free as in speech. Slashdot owns the new logos/designs, and YOU can't use them without their permission. Yay copyright!

NDPTAL85 (260093) | more than 10 years ago | (#6976784)

That the dot.com boom and bust has come and gone, you still need REAL MONEY to pay for things geeks like such as computers and internet access and that in order to make money you need a better business plan then "Lets just give away the fruits of our labor and hope our product sucks badly enough that our customers will need to hire a lot of support services from us!"

Yay mature individuals who realize money doesn't grow on trees!

Re:Also remember (3, Interesting)

Anonymous Coward | more than 10 years ago | (#6976841)

I don't have a problem with them selling shirts. Yay for them.

What I do have a problem with is the "Submit t-shirt suggestions which will then be our property." It just violates what the Slashdot seems to be about. Information wants to be free and what-not. They could've made the shirts, and still kept the logos open-source if someone else wanted to go around printing their own shirts (which I doubt too many would).

Re:Just remember (0, Insightful)

How is this insightful? Geez people, is everything an enemy now?

I buy CDs and movies on DVD! I wear the slashdot copyrighted shirt. I run SCO Unix and I drive gas guzzling SUVs! I'll never worship our new [insert word] overlords and in Soviet Russia, nothing eats me!

I'll buy one of these (people choice shirt), myself.

Honestly, if they wanted us to buy a shirt, why didn't we get a vote on them instead of the editors? I guess that just falls into the 'slashdot persona'

Re:I bought this one! (1)

Trigun (685027) | more than 10 years ago | (#6976682)

It would be better if you had to earn them first. But then again, I would have mine by now.

Re:I bought this one! (1)

Sevn (12012) | more than 10 years ago | (#6976876)

No doubt. Actually though the ripples of earning it would get to you before the light and gravity of the t-shirt. There would be a precursor event to the UPS guy showing up.

They used to have one, I got it. Has "Slashdot" with "news for nerds, stuff that matters" under it in small print. That is on the center of the front of the shirt, and on the back is a barcode, and under it, it reads "anonymous coward". I got mine through thinkgeek a few years ago, but I guess they abandoned that design. I got it because it was simple.

News for Nerds, bah (1, Interesting)

Anonymous Coward | more than 10 years ago | (#6976915)

The only way to be a nerd these days is to be self-proclaimed, which basically is just a way to claim "I'm elite and intelligent and you are mainstream." In reality there is nothing unique about someone simply because they read Slashdot and know how to use a computer.

Come now... (2, Funny)
