Parent article: On comment abuse
Unfortunately, Slashdot has become inadequate for serious discussion. It encourages quick comments. It doesn't protect good posters from abuse and doesn't let others protect good posters. It doesn't encourage moderators who want to spend more time on moderation. It doesn't really discourage stupid posters. It does not make enough to improve signal to noise ratio. And finally, Slashdot stories don't cover Linux in depth (if at all), like LWN does.
