Rejecting software by 12 year olds
I'd disagree that freshmeat should have some form of special section for new users or young children. It may hurt to have a program rejected because it isn't up to standards, but that's life. Freshmeat's here to provide a useful place to find software, not to make the programmers feel good about themselves. It probably sucks just as much for the editor to have to turn down the software as it sucks for the author, but thats the way it is.
