No, it's not. It's a terrible place full of extremely dumb and sad (but technologically curious) kids.

But it can be hilarious. Yesterday, there was an HN post and a /g/ thread about Intel's new CPU, and the discussion was so parallel -- the same noises of neuroticism and pessimism, but in HN delivered in pedantic paragraphs and on /g/ distilled in crude, biting brevity.

For that reason, I linked the thread and got downboated. I don't regret it.
