    Just send out a SHA hash of the front page.
    For example "1ad65bfb0225ec69e82d5a632da603b2cd4ac77c" uses of far less data than does all those wordy headlines and summaries you currently use! Anyone who can't figure out how to back the page from the hash should just go back to that other site!

    Lots of pages share the same SHA hash, so you wouldn't know which one is the right one...

    And that's the ONLY reason we're not just sending the SHA hash already.

      It's OK if you can't tell which page is which among those with identical SHA hash over at Slashdot; they'll be dupes anyway.
