    Don't worry, I'm a driver too. My comment did not prefer one transportation method over another.

    Let me be clear - Increasing speeds because a vehicle no longer burns gasoline is sounds like a bad idea to me. My comment intended to make it very clear the environmental costs include more than carbon.

    The environmental impacts are not so clear to me, as a bicyclist and pedestrian, who frequently witnesses drivers already ignoring speed limits on two-lane highways.

    Please, slow down.

    That is a large price difference for a single publisher.

    If enough publications follow suit then the content quality from the surviving ones may increase dramatically.

    My fear is ending up in "news bundle subscriptions" like cable television. Maybe those types of subscriptions are better suited for publications though.

    Personally, I see the problem as pronounced in Discord Servers. What does "fix" mean, here?

    Extra moderation would take care of my 12 old cousin uttering new and "forbidden" words. An entire subset of the population is taking refuge in gaming community shadows.

    Shining a light into the shadows could go a long way, in my opinion.
