This ^^^. 

I don't think I've commented on one of your posts, but I was long LNUX for a while because of a sum of parts on slashdot, thinkgeek, and sourceforge.  I sold out around 1.60 recently.  Slashdot isn't as relevant (Techcrunch, HN, reddit, digg... so many others), and like you said, GitHub is eating SourceForge's lunch.  Google Code isn't bad either.  Freshmeat is a nice niche retailer, but doesn't support the market cap.

It would make me too sad to red thumb them, but it's a shame.
