Why I Don't Bother With Slashdot Much Anymore

Stuff like this. (Via Insty.)

Even when Slashdot was dominated by highly technical people, the level of discourse--unless it was hardcore geeky--wasn't necessarily very high at all. It's worse now.

The global warming conversations should be enshrined for future generations as examples of how smart people can justify believing whatever they need to (as if doctoral theses weren't enough example).

Interestingly enough, all the top level comments are left-wing. Someone commented once that the lack of apparent dissent regarding leftist ideals had to do more with "not wanting to argue" and "worrying about retribution" than actual agreement.

Meanwhile, solar scientists worry about a (potential) impending ice age.
