It links to OSDN’s Personals, which is a weird, weird idea. Can you imagine the inverse? Match.com’s Linux resources, Microsoft/SCO bashing and trolling forum? And to think, I tried out a Slashdot membership and was missing quality ads like this (and paying for the privilege of spellchecking and dupe spotting).
