Slashdot Comments

I really like my daily dosage of slashdot. It's where I see what's going on and what's hot in Geekland.

I always liked to read the comments on the articles too. Just because there are always some other sides to a story which I just can't think of, the odd joke is also very nice. However, and yes now I am being an old fart, and this complaint is heard among many popular sites, the forums have degraded from 90% excellent comments, and 10% average humour, to 10% average comments, and 90% excellent humour.

Humour is rated better than excellence? A side effect of the rating system?
