I read slashdot daily only because of the commenting community. For posts regarding healthcare you can expect doctors and other medical professionals to chime in. For posts about computer science, you'll hear from both long-time veteran engineers as well as cutting edge researchers.

Unfortunately, when you start to drive away the only thing that makes Slashdot worthwhile--educated commentors and moderators--well I guess Ash from Army of Darkness sums it up pretty succinctly: "...I've got news for you pal, you ain't leadin' but two things, right now: Jack and shit... and Jack left town."
