Heh, it wasn't intended as an insult... anyway that Slashdot article just introduced it, at the time I believe it was still vapor. Cool to see it materialize.
And, may I say, "Hooray for 'mindless' link propagation!" Some people here apparently think no story should be posted unless some insightful write-up accompanies it. I find this akin to having to justify the link, and since it requires so little effort on their part to click a link and read the article itself, they should be able to form their own opinions regarding the merit of the link.
That said, I have nothing against insightful commentary. But it seems kuro5hin is being divided somewhat between the "I'll vote down anything that's just mindless link propagation" and... well... the rest.
just some thoughts from a fellow mindless link propagator. (since that story is apparently going to be voted down, I'll take this opportunity to note that many people seemed not to notice that the site, and the idea behind it, was a satire, which makes me wonder somewhat about the voters. I mean, I even said in the "writeup" that it was tongue-in-cheek...)
"Asking me who to follow -- don't ask me, I don't know!"
