DanielBMarkham comments on “Self-Censorship in Public Discourse: A Theory of ‘Political Correctness’ (1994) [pdf]”

DanielBMarkham comments on “Self-Censorship in Public Discourse: A Theory of ‘Political Correctness’ (1994) [pdf]” Agreed. A key question is whether or not a person can enter into a public forum, such as a discussion on town policy, use a slur, and continue to be heard and engaged intellectually. If they can, then the process of self-governing can continue. If they can’t — and to the degree they can’t — we

subroutine comments on “Worst Roommate Ever”

subroutine comments on “Worst Roommate Ever” Oddly not. Though, this Bachman guy was the direct cause of so much crazy stuff, I can hardly blame them for glossing over a proximal event (though, wouldn’t be surprised if he was somehow an instigator).

AnnoyingSwede comments on “Crazy new Swedish bill makes sharing music and TV as bad a “crime” as manslaughter”

moccachino comments on “Crazy new Swedish bill makes sharing music and TV as bad a “crime” as manslaughter” Stealing $1.00 from a million people who won’t miss it is more devious as you’re less likely to get caught and if you get caught people are less likely to bother pursuing it. But I think it is impossible to say one is objectively worse than the other. It depends so much

saagarjha comments on “Google Calendar should prevent spam by default” They’ve certainly put time into trying to fix it. Whether their spam detection algorithms are good enough to block out invites like these, I have no idea. link Author: saagarjha Go to Link: https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=16445318

jlebrech comments on “Space catapult startup SpinLaunch comes out of stealth” you could have a covered (hyperloop) train go round and round in the antarctic (against the earth’s spin) until in reached escape velocity and segment of the loop would detach and point the train up the space. link Author: jlebrech Go to Link: https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=16445317
