Let me give you my unwarranted Slashdot opinion: I seldom logged in and I read it through my RSS reader so I wouldn’t have to endure the comments section.
In modern times, Hacker News has taken over for Angry Nerd Dunking and I’ve got it blocked in my hostnames file on most of my computers.
Which brings me to another point: Hacker News is run by Paul Graham, and the topics it touches are all in the tech startup vein so it seems a little sketchy/conflict of interest-y that a powerful tech VC controls the information flow for his industry like that.
@jasonscheirer huh, I had not heard about that (never read hacker news, was a lurker at best on slashdot and haven't interacted with the site in easily 15 years) but it sure doesn't seem great
