    On the other hand I'm sick and tired of people just saying "but what can [insert tech company] do?" It's right there in the article. They've proven that the algorithm is fucked and is causing a LOT of misinformation. How about start fixing that or at least shut it the fuck down until it's working properly? OK, maybe none of the content providers is breaking any laws but how about these companies take a fucking stance anyway huh? This is not directed at you specifically, nothis.

    It's not available in private mode. Any way around it other than creating an account because that's not gonna happen?

    But there's no way I would support making the human race extinct.

    I love that you had to type this out. I agree with your sentiment. This is a very simplistic way of looking at it but I feel that some of these people "need to get out some more". Log off the internet and go see/socialize or just be around people and then you'll realize that there is a LOT of cool shit in this world. I'm not saying we don't have a huge task in front of us but if that's all you see you need a new perceptive. Whether you have kids or not I really don't care but to say the world is going under anyways and nothing's worth living for is just not true, unless you're dealt a REALLY shitty hand or are depressed as other people have said here.

    Is the term "having kids" always synonymous with more than one? I realize it is grammatically but I've always seen it as having/not having and not about numbers.

    What is the colloquial meaning then? I get the investment in someone's accomplishments but for your own benefit? How's that? Is that in line with the ownership? I think what I'm getting at is that the pride seems to reflect your own needs and feelings and not the one your saying it too and isn't that kind of the opposite of what most people think it means?

    Edit: What I'm getting at is that taking pride in someone else might be more selfish than most people seem to believe.

    What does "I'm proud of you" really mean? I've always had a difficult time with that phrase and the word "proud" itself. How does someone else pride reflect on me?

    I saw them last week at Copenhell and it was mind-fucking-blowing! The best show all weekend and I didn't know anything about them beforehand.

    Something is building in our politics and now I wish I hadn't watched that series about Chernobyl. We may be exceeding the tolerances of all our systems.

    I'm curious. Why don't they ban the sale of cigarettes too at the same time? I mean it seems silly that a product that's largely advertised as a "healthier" option to smokes is now getting banned...

    I'm curious. Why don't they ban the sale of cigarettes too at the same time? I mean it seems silly that a product that's largely advertised as a "healthier" option to smokes is now getting banned but the reason they exist isn't. I'm not a banning kind of guy and I smoke cigarettes myself but why not just go all the way?

    Well to go full on conspiracy it wouldn't be beyond him to have someone "send" him child porn in a attempt to derail the strong case against him. It would actually fit his persona very well.

    I can't so maybe the skepticism is somewhat fair. I just don't like how everything is shot down immediately just because people don't like the messenger and they think they know 100% how it's going to turn out. This might not be the place that will bring different opinions closer together but completely writing it off from the beginning just furthers stalemate.
