Dice Holdings, Inc, deleting unflattering stories from Slashdot firehose

An anonymous reader writes "Stories submitted to the Slashdot firehose that take a negative view on the site's redesign are being deleted. 4 hours ago, it was full of anti-beta posts. Now they are gone. That's right. A forum that usually leaves V14GRA spam in place for posterity is deleting user content."

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!

IRL DDOS DICE 888-321-DICE (3423) (1)

IRL DDOS of DICE 888-321-DICE (3423) (Score:1)

So since the Dice corporate overlords seem to be oblivious to the desires of the "audience", and seem to only care about the $$, it would follow that the way to get the attention of said corporate overlords is to impact their business at Dice.com. I propose an IRL DDOS of their phone lines. Emails can be deleted by the million, but phone calls on the other hand take up valuable time from their limited support staff. Please feel free to contact Dice support and keep their reps on the line for a few minutes. Talk POLITELY (hey they work for a living too) about how their bosses own a website called Slashdot which is an integral institution of the internets, and how Dice is destroying it.

Even if only 10% of us make one phone call once a day, thats over 40,000 phone calls. Once their customer service department becomes too overwhelmed by calls to function, and if we can make it persist for a few days, you can bet that the higher ups will take notice.

Here is their customer service line: 888-321-DICE (3423)

If you have more phone numbers for Dice, please post them as well.

Oh ya, BETA can suck an unwashed shit covered cock after an all night ass rape orgy.

That's a serious claim (1)

The only time /. has removed content was when the Cult of Scientology forced them to through a court order. That said, things are clearly different now: http://www.twst.com/update/388... [twst.com]
