Ouch... It was a brilliant post. That's gotta hurt!

It's not that I don't believe that Slashdot shouldn't have a user-supported revenue source, but I think that by offering people the choice between two equally distasteful alternatives, they made a fundamental error in how they approached things. A spoon full of sugar would have been in order, and sugar can be a lot less expensive than you'd think.

Poor marketing... and poor Slashdot -- they really do deserve better.

There's no way you can please the hardcore "EVERYTHING SHOULD BE FREE!!!" dorks over there. I know -- I've ended up on the receiving end being called a fascist at the local linux group -- and I even do a fair amount of GPL development.

Guess I wasn't hard core enough for that guy.
