Not all the AM users were cheating spouses. There were also quite a lot of non-cheating spouses checking on who was listed, non-married or divorced people, and users who never got to the meeting-up stage. I'm sure there were a bunch of students genuinely doing research from the profiles' info, too. And they're all affected the same way.

Systemd goes against the UNIX philosophy of doing one thing and doing it well. Imagine 10 years ago if you proposed this monstrosity of programs and system hooks along with binary log files (so now you need a different set of text manipulation tools like grep, awk, or sed to do the same thing as the old tools). Why should a window manager or "desktop environment" need dependency on something to manage system startup? I can't wait until it becomes full Windows style with a registry.dat file to contain everything from mount points to audio volume.

But the S.F. readers get bored of it much faster... Only the people who think they have a religious duty to "correct" reality have the patience, energy and engagement to stick around when everything goes eye-rollingly consternating.

I had not heard of this whole mess before today, and I find it already tedious just searching for basic factual information about WTF happened and who has been an arsehole and who stuffed whose ballots. I was just hoping to learn of exciting new authors, and now it feels like I'm somehow reading a Twitter argument between some random MRA and my transgender SJW sister.
