Last time I looked, Slash was an utter piece of crap.

In addition to Rob Malda mistakenly thinking he can play "editor" because
his site gets thousands of pageviews per day, slash illustrates that he
mistakenly thinks he can create efficient, robust server software.

Basically slash relies on just about every perl no-no to get its job done;
it's clear Malda never took (or maybe failed?) a software engineering
