+ - SOCIAL JUSTICE WARRIORS ARE COMING FOR OUR MUSIC #metalgate->

Submitted by hessian
hessian (467078) writes "SJWs are a divisive and destructive force in the world today. Masquerading under the guise of social justice they seek a position of victimhood and aim to label everything that stands against them as prejudice. Their modus operandi is to use shaming language to close down the conversation leaving them free to assert their dominance."

Problem with the web: too many websites with too much content, not one answer that can be given consistently to similar questions:

Solution: standardize the web, with Wikipedia, Google Knol, etc. and squeeze out those smaller websites so they stop mucking up the corporate profits.

When the sheep get warm and comfy enough, yank anyone who doesn't dish out for SSL, and make it so that it costs a thousand dollars a year to reasonably publish on the web, instead of the pennies it did a few years ago.

Then, you have total dominion and total control. For much profit!

+ - What Is #Metalgate?->

Submitted by hessian
hessian (467078) writes "Unlike #Gamergate, this is not something with a new sex scandal or coverup revealed. Rather, it represents the consequences of leftist invasion over an extended period of time. Leftists in the last several years have been trying hard to infuse metal with social issues instead of just enjoying the angst. The above video discusses this at length. The Washington Post wrote in 2006,"

+ - #metalgate explodes as SJWs attack heavy metal->

Submitted by hessian
hessian (467078) writes "It is easy to see however why someone might want to — as writers have in the past — call heavy metal conservative. Metal avoids “social issues” and other internal questions of a society and instead looks at the health of a society as a whole, or in other words, how sane it is. We see a world gone insane through a refusal to pay attention to reality. The methods of that are beyond an artistic genre and should be injected into it, but since 2006 at least trying to reform metal has been a pet project of SJWs."

I appreciate the reasons for the war on piracy, but TPB was more than a pirate nexus: it was a great place to links to downloads via bittorrent that everyone could get to.

The internet needs to return to its wild west days of open file storage. True, lots of people are going to pirate, but that's technologically inevitable. The anti-piracy people are destroying necessary stuff along with what they fear.

The game is to find a unique angle to approach your research that's essentially clickbait, then produce some results, and figure out some way you can claim victory and go home.

If you're just doing this to get on to the next stage, it makes sense to plagiarize and get it out of the way. You can get to the nice fat yearly income that way without having to know much of anything.

Do we have a quality of scientists problem because science is such an esteemed (and often well-paid, in private practice at least) career that people who should not be scientists are trying to be scientists?

Google is desperately searching for new products because they know what the rest of us are beginning to figure out: internet advertising is a paper tiger.

In theory, it leads to targeted ads reaching more people than ever before. In actuality, it advertises by demographic in the same way television does, and mostly repeats products you have shown interest in before whether you bought them or not.

Further, most of the sites showing advertising on their content are putting so many ads on the page that the effectiveness of any particular ad is radically diminished.

When this "dot-com bubble" (3.0) goes down, it's going to take the US economy with it, and through them, the world.
