Here's a pretty good youtube video on how much CGI there is in films we don't tend to think of as CGI.
People tend to get mad about CGI only when they notice it.
Also, many of the CGI movies people dislike just weren't very good movies.
When well used, CGI and practical effects are mixed and melded.
Case in point: mad max fury road, lauded for its practical effects (as seen in linked video above).

Someone else made an insightful comment about netflix a while back.
When the movie studios realized Netflix was giving the consumer what they wanted, they demanded a bigger piece of the pie and the Netflix catalog dried up.
Ever since, Netflix they've been filling it with junk documentaries and B-movies.
Netflix abandoned their fancy recommendation algorithm because it was simpler to just recommend based on popular and trending titles. And there's no point recommending something isn't in the catalog. Would you like to see a B-movie that tries to pass itself off as an A movie with cover art?
All that said, Netflix is the best out there. $7.99 for netflix, or $11.99 for hulu without ads.
I am not aware of any other mainstream competitors for flat-fee all-you-can-view offerings.
Google acquired them and has done next to no improvements. Off the top of my head, the only change I can think of is that they removed the ability to record calls placed by you while notifying both parties.

Let's not overstate the case.
348 police per 100,000 citizens in the USA.
Just looking at 1st world countries...
Fewer than Spain (533), Greece (491), Italy (465), Belgium (421).
In the same range as Northern Ireland (376), France, Israel, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Austria, Scotland, Germany (296).
More than Ireland (261), New Zealand, Denmark, Norway, Switzerland, Sweden, Canada (202), Japan (197), South Korea (195), Finland (137).
Google Chrome at least has a built-in click to play feature which blocks autoplay for flash.
But it doesn't block for HTML5 (coincidentally? used by Youtube).
"I had many many other adventures on that working week in Japan"
Yup, stories waiting to be told.
Thanks for sharing the first one. Not sure why people are so offended.
what's the original german?
no, it's more like liars who think everyone lies (or "is out for number one"), so they trust no one.
compared to truth tellers who think some people lie and some people don't, so they trust some.
your own mindset colors your view of the world.
Someone has to set the educational standards for the entire country. We can't have 50 states marching to a different drummer
Pardon my ignorance.
How did we get to the moon in 1969 without a Department of Education to set educational standards for the entire country?
... on not introducing toxic Codes of Conduct that split apart your community and are downright bigoted in order to push a particular agenda ?
Won't have to "make" new developers if you don't chase your existing ones away.
This is obviously something you have followed closely and thought about.
As someone who doesn't use github much and isn't familiar with this particular drama, can you elaborate?
It is difficult to soar with the eagles when you work with turkeys.
