I posted something in 2007 about leaving and I apparently came back at some point, but now it's going to have to be for good.
On Facebook, Reddit has 115k likes. Slashdot has 400 something.
I think this says something about left wing amateur journalism. Where /. went wrong was the political shit. It's a surefire way to piss off your readership. There were other huge errors but that one was very big. Leave the politics to politics sites. But then again, it appears that /. is a political site now, too. A bad one.
The net draws in on the Wikileaks crew
Facebook/Google/Twitter subpoenas of Wikileaks
Do I smell fear? They should be afraid...
Flee now to a country with no diplomatic relations with the US - North Korea, Iran and such would be good choices. While you can.
Does having all these left-wing assholes posting pay the bills?
I sure hope it does. They are retarded enough that they'd drive off any new blood. It's been a long time since I learned anything by reading the comments on any article here.
I post once a month now, and will probably cut even that back. Many days I don't even bother visiting.
Multiply sucks moose schlong
Just FYI. Totally inaccessible *again*. Looks like the competence they demonstrated for a few short months is fleeting.
An incident of bad moderation does it for me finally
I've had it with this place finally. Just about everyone I knew on here has fled the site in one way or another. Almost the last to leave, I bid you farewell.
You idiots ran it into the ground. Nice work. You had a vibrant community and wrecked it with posting limitations, moderation bugs and the irrelevant M2. 'Overrated' has to be the biggest laugh ever. I could spend every mod point I ever got on overrated mods and never be subject to M2.
You had a quite active (at least 100 people that I could identify) journaling circle which left for Multiply about 6 months ago because of all the harassment on here.
A friend of mine left about 2 months ago. His complaint was about the leftist slant on everything. He was right, of course, but that's almost an irrelevancy after the previously catalogued sins.
A large number of the people I mention were former subscribers, myself included.
The whole place is low grade dreck by this point and the articles are the same tripe every day. The insightful comments are rare, and the idiots posting are mostly just that, idiots. I used to learn something from reading here, but instead am annoyed incessantly nowadays.
In two words: bad administration.
Oh, and the editors were often flaming assholes too.
