    Don't give yourself the choice to play games, then. Lock all your games up and throw the key away.

    Yes, fine, but my main point is the second one – some vandalism won't change anything.

    This isn't that unpopular, I kind of agree with you.

    Well 90% of the population use the internet, so I'd say yes. And if they didn't know about the Hong Kong protests now, I doubt some graffiti will change anything.

    No. This raises no awareness, the Hong Kong protests are already well known.

    Is the harm done worth the awareness raised?

    Just because something is stupid and repetitive doesn't mean it's a comic book movie.

    I get why one wouldn't like them (especially The Hobbit films), but dreadful? Really?

    Peter Jackson's career peaked with Braindead. The Tolkien films were dreadful.

    I thought the "soap opera effect" was motion smoothing. Because motion smoothing looks fake and terrible.

    It's funny how nobody can praise the prequels without bringing up how the original movies are "just as flawed" or whatever.

    I think it might happen once the site is no longer invite-only. Until then, it will probably attract more and more tech people.

    Unless some sort of migration happens I don't see the site reaching a diversified crowd

    On white theme I think own comment's purple looks too similar to both exemplary's blue and OP's black, at least at first glance. I tend to confuse them, but maybe that's just me.

    What I don't like about the current system is the colors. Blue, black and purple look too similar.
