( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Frankly, I'm not sure that would be an improvement. It strikes me that that is a method/treatment of the symptoms, but does not cure the actual problem that we would need it for.

The inclusion of that feature in slashdot, allows the reader to seperate the stupidity/immaturity from the people who have a clue about something (whether or not that clue is simply advocacy for linux or OSS).

But I feel that the inclusion of the feature is an admittal that there is a big problem with many of the posters, and that the majority of the `content' is mindless trash. If we include this feature then if anything we are probably likely to see a rise in the number of trolls, since people won't do anything about them. Simply because people won't be viewing them, however, does not remove their taint.

If we reach the stage that we cannot continue without that feature, we reach the point that we may as well not really continue at all (I think I recall several high level monks saying they would probably just leave).
