Comment: Petty Web Design Peeve (Score 0) 224

I realize this is petty, especially given the subject of the web page, but why oh why does the C&EN page have to take over my arrow keys? I tried to scroll down gradually using them and found they've been taken over to move the page to the next *section*. When what you expected was to go down one line for each tap of the key, and therefore have tapped it a few times, it's surprising and stupid to end up halfway through the article.

I'm an old-time web developer and designer. I don't really do it professionally any more but I used to. So as a professional I have to ask: WHAT THE FUCK?

Socialism, by definition, is where the government owns the means of production. This isn't even partially the case almost anywhere any more, unless you really stretch the meaning of ownership. I may be exaggerating somewhat; there may still be state-owned companies here and there. But, really, socialism barely exists today.

I hope you're modded down below -1 into some minus infinity where we can never see your typing again. I've been to Newark, Philadelphia, Harlem, Bedford-Stuyvesant, and similar places many, many times. I am a white man who grew up in New York City and went to high school in Alphabet City. I've seen more of what passes for bad neighborhoods in America than you've had hot dinners, asshole. And I have never once been threatened, let alone menaced, attacked, mugged, beaten, shot, stabbed, or anything. The people of Ferguson are not animals. They're human. They're people. They deserve more respect than you do, Anonymous Coward, with your ridiculous racist views.

It is much easier to suggest solutions when you know nothing about the problem.
