I like the lack of annoying, flashing ads. I like
the frequent updates, the voting, and comments. The choice of articles
is very good too. The people here are, for the most part, pretty smart
and it's nice to be with others that are capable of thinking rationally
about computing. :)
I found out about LXer when it was first started having seen it
mentioned somewhere (can't remember where), and that's why I used a
first-name only handle--it was still available. Way back then, comments
for articles had like 5-6 views. Now it has grown immensely, to where
comments have between 40-100 views . I like that the site is
responsive, and not overrun by idiots (yet) like SlashDot. Grow too
much and it may get unpleasant here too, unfortunately. I don't think
anyone has heard of the "lxer effect" on a website yet, and that's a
good thing. It's hard to be a community when you don't ever recognize
anyone due to sheer size.
