    I don't think a hard control is needed but something like a dialogue on submission to the effect of "you have submitted x links from this source today" could serve as an appropriate gentle suggestion.

    There is a prelude to the submarine trip and a scene that was on board either a ferry or cruise ship. But largely there are external shots of the submarine/ocean only when the submarine has surfaced and once submerged is all internal shots that become tighter the deeper the sub dives.

    It takes a lot of advantage of the claustrophobic environment to control tension along with careful control of close shots and juxtaposition of outdoor shots to release tension much like 12 Angry Men.

    Lindsay Ellis has a video tackling the same "you couldn't make a Mel Brooks movie today" idiom but focuses instead on The Producers which is worth a watch.

    On my phone the actions button is on the left but when clicked expands further to the left offscreen so that I can't see the options.

    You raise a good point.

    However there does need to be reporting on prison labour in order to rouse the public to care about such policy and being attached to a political campaign may give the profile necessary to do that.

    Also to be clear my question is sincere, I am not american so I do not know candidates policy in depth.

    Does Bloomberg have a policy to end prison labour? Otherwise he believes in the practice and is opposed only to the aesthetic.

    “We didn’t know about this and we never would have allowed it if we had. We don’t believe in this practice and we’ve now ended our relationship with the subcontractor in question.”

    I don't think anyone disagrees that s230 is vital, but rather how broadly should it apply. We don't have to have a black and white idea of platforms holding either no responsibility or absolute...

    I don't think anyone disagrees that s230 is vital, but rather how broadly should it apply.

    We don't have to have a black and white idea of platforms holding either no responsibility or absolute responsibility. For one thing platforms are already held legally accountable if they do not respond to DMCA requests but we don't have to accept that as the only line drawn.

    The linked column doesn't provide any examples but there are some floating around the discourse right now such as disinformation in political advertising and stochastic terrorism.

    That was fascinating.

    The year game looks like something to propose at a party on new year's eve.

    I wonder if there could be a tildes version of In the Forrest where a thread is dedicated to our efforts to determine the game rules.

    I created a tag for "art game" a while back that might be appropriate for this article.
