Not this Slash.

Slash (an acronym for Slashdot Like Automated Story-telling Homepage) is the open source collection of Perl scripts which runs Slashdot, one of the oldest and most popular collaborative weblogs around. The package is often incorrectly called Slashcode, which is the name of the website and SourceForge project. It runs Slashdot (which has spawned many imitators, called SlashClones) and is released under the terms of the Free Software Foundation's GNU. Many other websites use various customized versions of this software for their own web forums.

Not to be confused with Slash, slash, /, or emo kids cutting their wrists.
