Slashdot threads are like car wreaks. If you look you’ll be compelled to keep looking even when you hate what you see. I subscribe to thier RSS feed, so I get sucked in regularly. I want to write an app that watches my browser, sees if I’ve been on a single slashdot page for more than 5 minutes and closes the browser window.
But this thread is too good to pass up. I’ve got my threshold set to 4 so I avoid a lot of crappy posts.
