Anyone here still read slashdot?

I'm sad to admit that I browse slashdot far too much. Though I believe I have 
you (and a few others) to blame for my addiction.

The beta annoys me because it doesn't show comments at all without javascript 
enabled, it loads really slow on mobile, and it is generally annoying. And the 
javascript pop-up ad I got yesterday about has me swearing never to go back.

But then I got the shakes.

I won't admit to being old, inflexible, or curmudgeonly, but I will admit to 
having been labeled that way in the recent past.
