    Why is it becoming more and more rubbish?

    Infrequent updates, usually late behind the news curve. The 24" iMac release was not on for a day or so.

    Poor summaries.

    Hardly any comments.

    It was supposed to have been upgraded, hardware-wise, with the promise of more updates and suchlike but I have seen no evidence of this.

    Urge to remove it from bookmarks increasing...

    I agree. Many years ago (2001/2002-ish) it was pretty good. The MacSlash guys were the first people to get Slashdot's Slashcode system running on OS X, and I think MacSlash was the first Slashdot-style site to focus on the Mac.

    I think MacSlash has basically been killed by Slashdot's increased Apple coverage. There's nothing on that can't provide, not to mention that /.'s reach and awareness is that much greater.

    I haven't visited it on a regular basis for a long time now, and I used to be quite an active user. It's still in my bookmarks, but (like you), I'm increasingly wondering why (sorry, AcaBen, if you're around these parts...)

    Some of the news stories on macslash are not covered on Slashdot, there are some nice articles which get posted on there. The only trouble with the site is the lack of traffic. If I post something I want people to respond and discuss it which you don't get there. At the moment I basically click the links and I'm done.
