My record with submitting stories to Slashdot is 3-0 (Rejected - Accepted). Granted, two of the stories had already been carried (my bad for not noticing this), but the third one was rejected because it probably didn't suit the omelette.
As a mark of protest, I have created an account with kuro5hin ;-) BTW, K5 dispenses mod points to everybody it seems -- unlike Slashdot which sort of considers this a bestowed privilege.
The discerning reader would have noticed that this post has a title. Thank you very much. No, it wasn't much trouble. Just had to turn on a Blogger formatting option.
