Mitchell posted a message <http://groups.google.com/…1F.3030903%40badubadu.com> to the netscape.public.mozilla.general newsgroup saying that she had been laid off. And no tech news sites (that I know of) picked it up. In fact, no-one seemed to notice. Then a certain Mozilla 'news' site that will remain unnamed reported it and suddenly Slashdot notices and links to the article (which featured the usual factual inaccuracies and distortions), driving traffic to the site. Alas, it seems there was not enough traffic to bring down its servers, which is more than I can say for Bugzilla which appears to be well and truly Slashdotted.
