Slashdot Trolls
Posted by tim in The internet sucks! on May 16, 2006

Well, I have read through the comments posted on Slashdot in reply to my submission. All I can say is people suck!

First off, let me tell you that what was posted has been edited from what I submitted. What I did post is that it was valid until the end of the year, and that it was just a promotion in the United States and Canada. The Slashdot editors found it necessary to remove that and replace it with other content, such as "SkypeIn costs $38 a year".

So... In light of the negative responses about how "the author should have mentioned that", I feel that the responses were completely out of line.

Also, I suppose you would like to know what version of mscomm32.ocx I'm using? Too bad. Skype is a very cool service that works well "out of the box". They also have a support staff. Albeit, I've never used their support, I imagine they would be very helpful.

So there. You people that didn't like what I said can go screw yourselves. I'm not the messiah of Skype, so don't expect me to answer all your questions before you ask them.
