Slashdot, nothin but flames.

I seem to remember a day when Slashdot actually attempted to post tech news, much like the digg or reddits of today. But if you look at the RSS feed of slashdot at any given time lately, all it is anymore are articles displayed for the mocking of the unwashed slashdot minions. How many Microsoft doing [x] articles are there lately? The news is usually something useless like "Microsoft releases 3 patches for security vunerabilities", but the obvious intent is just to let all the slashdotters get +5 funny's for their various jokes on MS. I didn't think i'd say this even last year, but the good conversation has moved to digg. Slashdot just seems like a pathetic hangout for people who like to mock MS, the US government, and occasionally have a flamewar about Apple, Google, or Nintendo.
