I would have to agree with your opinion of the current Slashdot.  The
signal-to-noise ratio of the comments section is getting uncomfortable.  I
have stopped checking into slashdot about two months ago - and I only read
it now when I am bored and between tasks. - even then the visit is only a
cursory scan of the topics on the front page; I don't even attempt to wade
through the comments.

If someone does feel the need to instigate a slashdot clone, I'll be
willing to help too, at least with the graphics.  However, I will only
consider working on a site with a *true* free software bias.

Thank you for sharing your views, and let's hope for the best.
