Meta articles are also a quick measure on the size and involvement of the community. Seeing weeks of articles with only a few comments each makes you wonder if anybody is reading them at all. But Pipedot is a topic we all have a stake in, so you get a better indication of how many people are happy to comment.

I'm usually a lurker but regular reader of |. Thanks for this article letting us lurker to show ourselves ;)
I did try SN but left as it was becoming junk info like /. I was glad |. seemed focused in news for nerds. I agree that most technical news do no need comments so a feed-back of the interest of the article itself would be appreciated.
For instance I was really enjoying the weekly review of a gnu/linux distro ;)
Maybe "ask pipedot" questions (technically related of course) would be of interrest as those are by essence technical discussions :P For instance "when not to upgrade some part of a working architecture?" or "how to upgrade a live set of linux servers when spare ressources are rare or none?"
