I live in Arizona, and not on the Navajo reservation in Four Corners, and therefore do not "do" DST. However, Slashdot doesn't give me an option to select (-0700 MST (Arizona) ) as my time zone, and instead forces me to either pick "Mountain" and live with the idiocy that is DST for as long as it lasts, or to manually switch my Time Zone from Mountain to Pacific and back again PRN.
Slashdot, of all places, should be capable of recognizing that not everyone recognizes DST and make the appropriate option to recognize DST available. Maybe "yes" is the default; I recognize that more people do than don't, but at least make it an option.
