What if Slashdot (or other online communities...Usenet for example) instituted something like Epinions Web of Trust system? Instead of having to read through everything, a user could just read stuff posted by people they trust...and by people that those people trust. A Six Degreed, Epinioned Slashdot. Actually, if Deja were to implement something similar, Usenet might become almost, well, Usable(net).
