"I see even Slashdot isn't immune to getting suckered into posting fake news?"
That statement doesn't make any sense at all. It implies that Slashdot has some very well respected reputation for vetting their news.
"I'm pretty sure no one wants someone else to be able to load that kind of crap on their phones, but if you can do it, they can do it, too."
Somebody should invent passwords!
"Heavens forbid that the best candidates are picked! Oh the horror!"
Evidently you aren't particularly bright. Only 1 women was hired for 1,231 men. That is indisputable Prima Facia evidence that picking the best candidate is exactly what couldn't possibly have happened, your absurd implication that all women are incompetent not withstanding..
"is something else picking them off earlier in the production chain such that Facebook's hiring is simply an accurate representation of the candidates it has to work with?'"
You are kidding right? Do you really question if it might be true that only 1 in 1,231 candidates would be qualified women? Seriously?
"I went to school to speak with my daughter's teacher when she was in the third grade and struggling."
Well there is your problem right there. If your daughter's teacher is in the third grade and struggling, then you need to find a different teacher for your daughter!
"Then that is the problem. A window trying to draw should be the highest possible priority on desktop workstation and should not be treated like other processes."
Clearly, you prefer your systems to crawl to a halt! Bravo sir!
