SlashDot is just a moderated blog, not a traditional media outlet. It's
perfectly acceptable there to counter items you disagree with,
especially if they based on your own work. As a blog it's not really
fact checked, more topic checked. What gets posted in part depends in
good part on what the moderators (other users) think of your posting
history. Of course postings also need to appeal to us nerds :)
