Re: Roolz of the Rode

Just almost got hit by a cyclist who didn't think stop signs applied to him even when his view of pedestrians entering the crosswalk was blocked.

PS, thanks guy who parked so close to the stop sign

Fair enough. I wonder what that would look like. Refusing an ad with misinformation about gun control, maybe.

Re: Twitter!

I hope the muting function works well. I'm tired of having to see Chelsea Clinton's tweets just because an influential ecologist whom I follow likes her tweets. Also, I'm ambivalent, but annoyed on balance about the fact that Twitter now shows me tweets that those I follow have liked, but not retwe...

Are you outraged at Twitter or the candidate? In the universe where I run Twitter, I'd just say you can't run an ad on my service that's obviously, demonstrably bullshit, and forget all the mealy-mouthed feel-good bullshit about evoking a strong negative reaction. At Twitter, who surely won't have ...
