What kind of logging does Slashdot do?
We log the usual stuff (IP, page, time, user, page views, moderation, and comment posting, mainly), and a few other bits, too. The data is used mostly to make moderation possible.
Why do I see 'loading from a.fsdn.com' when I'm reading Slashdot?
That's our image server; if you block it, you'll miss all the graphic violence.
