'This information was acquired through the recently patched Snapchat exploit and is being shared with the public to raise awareness on the issue,' reads a statement on SnapchatDB."

    slashdot beta sucks and it is not nice to redirect people to it at random.

    I've seen nothing but the most negative comments about the Slashdot Beta. While I've probably seen well over 50 comments expressing mild to extreme hatred for the Slashdot Beta, I have not seen a single comment saying anything remotely non-negative, never mind positive, about it.

    How long is this farce going to continue? Why is this Slashdot Beta project still around? All of the existing users here who have been subjected to it apparently hate it. It will obviously not bring in any new users, never mind enough new users to make up for all of the users who it will drive away.

    There's no shame in killing failing software projects. Slashdot Beta is, indisputably, a failing software project. The users all hate it. It is objectively worse than what it's replacing. It brings no positives, but brings truckloads of negatives.

    Cutting one's losses as early as possible when facing a failing software project is a very sensible thing to do. Slashdot should cut its losses now and put an end to this Slashdot Beta nonsense.

    The Slashdot Beta needs to go. It cannot be salvaged. It's unfortunate, but all of the work and effort put toward it so far needs to be thrown out. Everything about it is bad, bad, bad!
