Nerd stereotypes are extremely common on Slashdot. The most common stereotypes are:
- That Slashdotters are male
- That Slashdotters are single
- That male Slashdotters have poor social skills, particularly in relating to women
- That female Slashdotters are rare, unattractive, non-existent, or in reality males hiding behind a feminine name
- That Slashdotters spend inordinate amounts of time in front of computers
- That Slashdotters use the GNU/Linux operating system on their computers
- That Slashdotters have poor hygiene
- That most Slashdotters usually live with their parents (often expressed as "living in their mothers' basements")
- That Slashdotters are obsessed with pornography and/or masturbation (example: "500GB hard drive? How am I going to fit all my pr0n in that?!")

In Elektra v. Wilke, the Chicago RIAA case in which defendant Paul Wilke has moved for summary judgment, the RIAA has responded to the summary judgment motion by filing a motion for 'expedited discovery', alleging that it needs expedited pretrial discovery because it does not have sufficient evidence to withstand Mr. Wilke's motion. The RIAA's lawyer said: 'Plaintiffs cannot at this time, without an opportunity for full discovery present by affidavit facts essential to justify their opposition to Defendant's motion.' The motion and supporting affidavit are available online.Anyone have an idea what's going on? Anyone?
"Defendant: I'm tired of this bullshit. Show me what you really have so we can get this over and done with.Ok.......
RIAA: Uhhh... shit. We don't have a thing. Your honour could we please search everything the defendant owns in order to find something?"
