I sense a bit of contradiction here ... your quality standards are higher than many !

Slashdot is a famous news/forum website focusing on nerdy subjects. The audience is large enough to cause server overload when everyone clicks on the same link at the same time ... Being "slashdotted" means your website gained a sudden, usually short-lived, huge traffic, which may have as many advantages (fame & glory) as disadvantages (server slowdown, angry ISP).

I see. Thanks for the info.
My personal standards are actually pretty freakin' low, ha ha. When others are involved, the bar gets raised a bit, or at least I try to raise it.
