Here's where I disagree with ScottyO... If Xach mentioned something about Natalie Portman, hot grits, "first post", or just plainly said, "this sucks!", then, yes; that sounds more like a common -1 Slashdot comment. In my opinion, Xach's comment was adaquate for this site, as it pinpointed exactly what Xach thought. It was his opinion, and he's entitled to that. Also, Xach suggested how the article could be written better through constructive criticism.
I think Xach is justified in his comment, personally. Also, I think the article was a nice effort, even if it was not perfect. If it benefitted someone, it was worth publication.
