# Alternatives to Slashdot post beta?

An anonymous reader writes "Like many Slashdotters, I intend to stop visiting Slashdot after the beta changeover. After years of steady decline in the quality of discussions here, the beta will be the last straw. What sites alternative to Slashdot have others found? The best I have found has been arstechnica.com, but it has been a while since I've looked for tech discussion sites."

I probably visit The Register [slashdot.org] more often than Slashdot nowadays.

### Beta touched my junk liberally (1)

#### schlouse (36695) | about 7 months ago | (#46173355)

Beta touched my junk liberally. Dice strapped me in to their beta and they couldn't keep their offensive hands off of me. They were performing many red flag touches. I couldn't believe what the fuck was going on.

Please, comparing beta to rape is insensitive to victims of rape. It's more like 9/11, except the beta programmers were fucking babies while they hijacked the planes.

This guy wants to start altSlashdot: http://slashdot.org/~Okian%20W... [slashdot.org] - check his latest comments

I hope it will have UTF-8 support as well as mathjax - the math rendering engine used on stackexchange [stackoverflow.com] . Imagine how wonderful comments and posts could look like, if people could embed formulas easily!
