What happens in Europe is that they start making the streets in such a way that they are automatically so that you drive a lower speed. Especially in neighbourhoods where people live.
I live there. What happens in practice, is that the people that were already obeying the speed limit are slowed down. And the people that were speeding before, see it as an obstacle course challenge, going as fast or faster as before, but now also swerving dangerously... Also, when you put a big obstacle on the road, people tend to focus on that, instead of watching out for pedestrians.
Where I live, there's a sudden road divider and recombiner intended to slow drivers down from a 40mph zone to a 25mph zone. But every part of the street is well lit with overhead lamps except this road obstacle. There are always dark tire marks on the curbs there.
Do you just ignore the comment rating slider at the upper-right of the conversation area
I use the classic view because that "comment rating slider" will show score 0 posts, but not score -1. You can't properly moderate without seeing all the posts.
I'm an author, and I have no problem with this. In fact, I encourage it. Why should a generation find a means to profit off my work, changing it, manipulating it, doing whatever they want with it, soon after I pass? What a disgrace that could be.
Parent is totally right. After all, the copyright clause does read:

The trouble with posting everyones' salaries is that....it DOES tend to trend towards everyone getting paid the same, which penalizes those folks that work harder, are worth more...and are better negotiators
Removing negotiation skill as a factor for pay is a plus for any job that doesn't directly involve negotiation. If Frank does a better job than Bill, but Bill is a great BS artist, then Bill shouldn't get paid the same (or more) just because he puts a nice spin on things.
