Well, a couple of other stories submitted for today were april fools jokes of that sort. For example, someone (most likely raph) set up their own frameset to make it look like PR NewsWire was carrying a very biting story about Slashdot (the andover vs. avogato story). I thought that was pretty good. And, of course, Salon filled up their entire newsmagazine today with stories about sex, boobs, and Linux.
I'm not surprised at the shittiness of Slashdot today. Last year it was pretty bad, and I figured it'd have gotten even worse this year. None of the jokes are even FUNNY. And why do they merit huge-ass discussions? I'm afraid to even look at any of them, for fear of seeing lots of people saying that it isn't funny, or having to have april fool's explained to them, or whatever (like what happened last year).
