    We can talk about battlefield realism once we talk about this... https://youtu.be/dlUUmPShoMM I played bf games from 1942 to 4 and met my wife that way. Realism is not their USP.

    I'm a lifetime Mac user. I started on my parents Mac Plus and my first machine was a Performa 630. I lived though (and owned one) in the clone era. I ran the os x beta. I had the first Bondi iMac. A G4 sawtooth tower. The first 12 inch macbook. Still have an iMac now.

    But my laptop for travel is a Lenovo, and in struggling to justify a new iMac as my current one gets ever slower.

    They aren't leading the tech wave anymore and the integration they offered no longer makes their hw so much better than others. I love my iPhone x and Apple watch but the laptop and desktop experience just isn't keeping up.

    I'm currently hooked on fruit infused teas from a Japanese company called Lupicia. I bought some on a trip to Japan last year, and i adored it, it is black tea with fruit rather than just fruit, and its fabulous. The first one that hooked me was a Sakura themes cherry blossom and white peach. There is also a mango and red peppercorn which is pretty insane.

    Incidentally of course Discovery has a rather awesomely sweet gay relationship. But then Discovery explicitly breaks Roddenberry conventions

    Is trust going to be global or per community? As if it has a community component then I'd think that would sort of achieve the same thing.

    Yeah, my deep abiding love of space will definitely get me going to see this. That said not a huge Gosling fan. Will be interesting to see how he manages a tricky part.

    Really hoping Dead & Company do a European tour, as rumoured. I saw the last Dead tour to the UK with my deadhead father when I was under 10.

    Kids In The Hall stuck with me way more than something briefly on beer late night British TV in the 90s should have.

    I think at this early stage when each user, especially active poster, has a big impact on the overall tone then @deimos was right to do this. I think bad faith fairly justified skipping to a ban. As we scale out I think that some warning for potentially fixable behaviour is maybe more reasonable. Still gonna call in the ban hammer for egregious bigotry.

    Can I also suggest that once trust is implemented, loss of trust status will be a powerful mechanism for warnings.
