like most things in life, it's good and bad at the same time.
it's good because it will get the sport a lot of attention. a LOT of attention. most sites that get posted on slashdot.org go down almost immediatly due to an amount of incoming traffic that they can't handle (the slashdot effect is the term people have coined for this, or simply slashdotting). see http://everything2.com?node=slashdot%20effect
it's bad because a lot of the people that hang out on slashdot are skript kiddies with nothing better to do than harass other people. i usually wince when i see something i like posted to slashdot because it usually means that people are going to post the most inane and irrelevent comments (turning it into a holy war as often as possible, like linux vs. bsd) and there's going to be a huge influx of people stampeding over whatever was posted. i fear that probably the list is going to get very noisy if this turns out to be popular with the slashdot demographic, i'm just hoping that it's too 'geeky' for them to pick up on. ;)
