Also note that the site is quite old and some of its criticism doesn't apply anymore, for instance his complaint number one, the existence of Jon Katz. Katz hasn't written anything on /. in ages.|
Also, funny that he names NewsForge as one alternative - NewsForge is, like Slashdot, part of OSDN, the sites share both some editorial staff as well as a huge part of their community - I'd wager nearly all Newsforge readers also read Slashdot on occasion. Of course, NewsForge does have an entirely different concept so it might well be better (wrt his points) than Slashdot.
