Hope this doesn't change the way /. functions!!! Dice Holdings is best known for its career sites. I don't know if they would be able to maintain the way /. functions!! Fingers crossed!

Farewell Slashdot. (1)

The sell out was good for a few that got the money... But sucks the hind tit for what will happen to the product... total corruption of the property and the brand equity is forever tarnished. Goodbye to what was... forever.
