This site continues to be worth checking in on. Comments are just as informative and fun as the writing itself. Cons: Must do a lot of browsing sometimes over stories I'm not l33t enough to even understand.
If you dock humor by one and filter out everything but the 5- and 4- score, you have an excellent chance of reading some insightful or informative commentary. Cons: In-jokes can get tired and obscure. Goatse. Humor gets upvoted higher than it usually merits.
