Bleh. Apparently not caring what you do on other sites or even requiring any personal information isn't good enough for the state of Confusion^WCalifornia, so we have a shiny, new, temporary Privacy Policy posted on every page and linked at the top of the nav bar.

If you feel like prettying the language, layout, or whatever up before I get around to it, feel free to do so and submit a pull request.

    Slashdot got a lot worse after this site was set up as a result of one simple decision: they removed the Message Center. That meant that there wasn't any way of replying to a post without manually monitoring each of your posts for replies and so discussion fell into one-shot remarks. If you asked someone a question, they'd never see it so you wouldn't get a reply (and if you did, you wouldn't see it). This format dramatically favoured trolls and selects against in-depth discussions.

    WTF, why? You might as well just say "stop posting here."

    "Is that really true?" "I just spent the last hour telling you to think for yourself! Didn't you hear anything I said?"

      I can't speak for their intentions, but that's how I interpreted it and stopped.
