What kind of logging does Slashdot do?

We log the usual stuff (IP, page, time, user, page views, moderation, and comment posting, mainly), and a few other bits, too. The data is used mostly to make moderation possible.

Why do I see 'loading from' when I'm reading Slashdot?

That's our image server; if you block it, you'll miss all the graphic violence.

I use NoScript; what should I know?

Whitelisting is necessary for the fancier parts of the site to function. You'll need to whitelist too; that's our CDN, and if you block it, many things may break.
