/. Beta comments don't work, users upset.

It simply isn't as good as the so called Classic system. Some users, however, haven't a bad thing to say. Mainly because they haven't had a chance to even use the new system. It simply doesn't load. One user, Magic Maverick , who lives in a third-world country with crappy Internet, had this to say:

I come to /. for the comments, but with the new Beta, I can't even see anything! It just says:

''Shazbot! We ran into some trouble getting the comments. Try again... na-nu, na-nu!

It seems like the "developers" need to take some advice from people who actually know what they are doing. I'm happy to help explain what graceful degradation means if they like...

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 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.

Happening to me in Australia as well. (1)

Why does the error message sound like it's making fun of you? I guess they are serious about reducing the value of /. to 0 []
