Netcraft Confirms It: Slashdot is Dying

It is now official. Netcraft has confirmed: Slashdot is dying.

One more crippling bombshell hit the already beleaguered Slashdot community when posters confirmed that the site had not been updated since March 1 and that much of the functionality (including login) was broken. Coming on the heels of a yet another slew of Social Justice Warrioring posts about women in tech, this news serves to reinforce what we’ve known all along. Slashdot is collapsing in complete disarray.

You don’t need to be the Amazing Kreskin to predict Slashdot’s future. The handwriting is on the wall: Slashdot faces a bleak future. In fact there won’t be any future at all for Slashdot, because Slashdot is dying. Things are looking very bad for Slashdot. As many of us are already aware, Slashdot continues to lose readership. Red ink flows like a river of blood.

(Supposedly parent SourceForge is undergoing a widespread DDOS attack, but for longtime Slashdot readers, the “Netcraft confirms it” meme was too tempting to pass up…)

3/3/18: Edited to add:

3/3/18, 9:30 PM CST: The front page has finally started updating again, but some stories still seem 404, and there’s no story about the outage itself, which is odd…

3/4/18: They’ve now put up a story about the outage. Evidently the DDOS attack happened during a hardware migration.

    But … but … where will I go for OCD obsessive nerds arguing with each other?

    And it must be said: FIRST!

    Where will they go? They’ll climb back on the purpled haired cunts strap-ons and flash a soy smile as they are composted by the SJW cuntitude. Buh-bye, soy boys/

    It’s very sad. Shlashdot used to be a superb tech forum. But then the global warming fanatics and assorted leftist loons invaded, and started crapping on every discussion.

    And so, just like Venezuela, the rot and fatal collapse is inevitable.

    Get woke, go broke.
